Uwajima Castle, Uwajima

4.3
Hike the ancient stairway to Uwajima Castle, a fortified structure well known as one of only 12 in the country to retain its original wooden keep. This modest hilltop castle affords elevated views over the bay and the township, stretching to the verdant hills that surround. Within the three-tiered keep, you can inspect swords and armor, alongside portraits of the feudal lords who owned them. Though the hike to the castle takes only 10-15 minutes, the steep and uneven trail may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

  • Uwajima Castle for a long time nostalgia brought back memories, unlike Ozu castle changed.... Area road pavement harshness "as a feeling.... But Ishigaki to ask locals got together by chance and collapsed in the Typhoon and heavy rain damage repair is done, but camphor tree also due to fears of fallen trees, cut with cherry blossom season will miss because trees were planted after World War II also fueled. 高marazu reconstruction of the gate and Tower also missed the recent boom"Castle" Castle maintenance so lonely,. Same "four of the Tokugawa shogunate, Hou", is a far cry from Kochi Castle has done brilliantly. Matsuyama and Kochi airport location disadvantage is there is no way, the highway is opened "Matsuyama Castle-OSU Castle-Uwajima Castle" of travel in one day have become available. Little appeal as a "tourist" even better is not it? Or to recover was around rather than parking you pay for the signs, increase the magnificence of the Castle Tower or wall.... I hate that neglected feeling of is in contrast with Ozu Castle was restored by the enthusiasm of the citizens. I could take pictures of "Uwajima Castle Vista" one of the purpose of the visit. You can't ever find on the net! Taken from the side of a mountain, Lookout Mountain is Maruyama Park, saw the city maps of parking another angle as I headed, the Observatory found?. I'm alone to introduce the shooting spot "floating clouds in fortress" has become the craze Mania will move around in the city.

  • It's no structure other than the Castle, but 10-fluent in only the Castle Tower in the Castle. White walls are sky blue sky, fresh feeling. Early September, visitors will climb the tower still had the days of extreme heat and wind from the sea is missing from the Windows, it's exhilarating. Indigo of the sea in the distance, the Castle and the blue of the sky very memorable.

  • The smallest of the original castles it is still worth a visit. Its remote location and small size also make it a much more personal experience than the giant castles in the other parts of Japan. It really reminded me of visiting the castle behind my relatives house in Germany.
  • A small original castle. The walk up and views are more interesting than the inside of the castle.
  • Original castle donjon with great views of the surrounding area. It's a climb to the top and if you approach from the wrong direction, you might have trouble finding the bottom of the path (but if you're coming from the train station, you're okay!). The castle is small and has three stories. Admission is 200 yen for adults and 100 yen for children. There is not much to see in the castle, but it is worth the cheap admission price for the additional city and harbour views. Don't forget to get a picture of the castle with a mountain background in mid-day. Best time to view is in cherry blossom season.
  • Sweet little castle with nice views on the city and the port.
  • Really not too much to see...
