The castle is very well maintained and beautiful. Displays inside provide a true insight into what life under the Shogunate must have been like. The gardens and various groves around the main premises are also very charming.

Honestly, it was only okay. It was pretty underwhelming. You just see an old building with its original floors and get a peek into how they lived in the old days but that’s about it. If you’re a huge history / architecture / culture buff, then maybe you’d want to come here. But if you’re here for a few days, I’d suggest going somewhere else like those nice temples or parks where you can enjoy a stroll and take some nice pictures.

Was pleasantly surprised by this place. We weren't planning on going except we were nearby. You have to pay to see the grounds but it wasnt much.
It''s quite beautiful and has an stunning garden with water features inside. Walk around the grounds, see the moats, the garden, plum trees, cherry blossoms. There's a part you can climb up and see a bit of a view of the city.

It's absolutely stunning inside this castle. The gardens are just majestic. You can tell the Japanese government really spend a lot of time, money and effort to preserve and restore this historic masterpiece.

Entrance costs 600 yen. Very interesting place to learn about the history of the castle and how it was once the dwelling place for various Shoguns. The inner grounds are really huge and it would take significant walking too. You can have Kyoto sweets and a chance to make your own matcha in one of the food stalls inside.
