  • It is a visit by car. Free parking is available on the west side. Admission is 300 yen. You can stamp on the restored Bizen tower. There is a stone wall without the thickness of the wall and a wide honmaru area. It was built in the Edo period. It is a wonderful territory which i think that it may be said that it is the final form of the castle in Japan. You can visit in about 40 minutes.

  • It was one of the 100 castles in Japan, so I went to see what kind of castle it was. It is very far from JR Tsuyama Station and it is better to go by car. I was surprised to see the walls, and i think it was a stone height of around 100,000 stone from generation to generation, but it is very impressive in the magnificent castle which does not seem to be the scale. The scenery of Tsuyama city seen from the honmaru mark is very beautiful and is recommended.

  • The heart-shaped rock is mixed in the stone wall leading to the ruins of the castle tower. Of course it's a coincidence, but it's interesting. The stone steps leading to the splendid stone wall and honmaru were quaint, and it took time to climb the castle unexpectedly. Admission is 300 yen, and 100 castle stamps are located in the Bizen Tower.

  • From Kanagawa Prefecture, went to the cherry blossom season once. Cherry blossoms are beautiful. Just rock on stage? Hip hop? Have been played, just went. Unlike Korakuen and Kurashiki, and slowly is not going.
