    Only a little castle but situated in a nice area as part of Yokote Park. For Y100 you get to look around the reconstructed building where there are some good displays and information on the history of...  more »

    Yokote Castle was burned in the role of Commandant, serving as Observatory and interpretive center in the ninomaru ruins mock castle has been built. Because the surroundings are green had visited early in the morning for a mock castle admission does not take a pleasant walk! Moats is a Akita shrine. Beware of bears signs all over the place, so was I.

    It is located northeast of the city of Yokote Castle. Now maintained as Yokote Park. Faux Castle is ninomaru ruins in the Park exhibition Lookout and Museum were built, Akita shrines were built in the Castle proper mark. Within the Park is quite vast, away from baseball stadium, skiing the dam lake in the honmaru, ninomaru. In the time of cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms are planted more from Festival is being held. Quite difficult to go elsewhere, not through public transportation. Only go by foot or car does not. From the 七曲ri walk, behind Nikko student hospital, beside Yokote dispensing pharmacies if, I climbed the mountain path from the Honda Masazumi Park end place near. So if the car continues the ascent from a Seongnam high school district puts parking from there. A personal recommendation is 七曲ri. Likely used here is from the period of warring States period Onodera who had resided in. I think fun days ahead or while climbing. If you go and look at all comfortable, so takes a lot of time. Because personally I only Akita shrine and Observatory tour we recommend that. Are reminded that once had a castle, and if only two very minimal time. If the time of cherry blossoms in front of the observation tower cherry trees and an observation deck to see together and lined with food stalls, is gorgeous. Akita shrine is built with scrap wood Yokote Castle from 蟇股 has been carved satake family crest, you can recommend it to history. When you visit the Yokote Yokote tourist center, so please go.

    I requested this historic site be added, after noticing it was not found in Google Maps. It is famous for holding and annual winter festival; where the inside of the castle is accessible to visitors only one day a year. I recommend a day trip to this area. There are also small shops and cafes open nearby, weather permitting.
