Highly recommended. Come for the history and stay for the adventure!
Absolutely stunning views. We were grateful that we took the time to visit the castle. I just wish we had another week or more right here. There was so much to see. Plan on spending half a day in order to enjoy everything!

The castle grounds was impressive; the high surrounding walls and moats were well crafted and withstood the passage of time in excellent condition.
The castle is a beautiful building; you begin its tour by leaving your shoes at the entrance and securing your camera/phones. No photography allowed in building.
You can read all the history and enjoy all the artworks(replicas of original). I was intrigued by the squeaky floors and the technology the used to achieve the sounds.
It was a bit steamy in September but a tour is well worth your time.

For 600 yen you get to walk around an old castle that had excellent preserved murals. The tigers are a bit iffy but the explanation covers why the look that way, (Look it up or read the placards inside the castle tour). The woodwork is incredible, squeaky floors and all.
The garden is very pretty and check out all the tea bushes that are all over the paths. Definitely worth a visit, come early to avoid all crowds.

One of my favorite attractions so far as you can actually walk inside the castle and really get a feel for how grand it is. There are guidebooks in English and explanations within the castle of the meanings behind the wall murals and architecture of the rooms. The outside garden is beautiful to walk through as well.

Loved this place, the castle itself is stunning. The walls, the moat, the gardens are all stunning. It takes a good 2 hours to fully do inside of the castle and the gardens. It is well worth hiring the audio guide to walk through the castle as it informs you truly how important this castle was in the history of Japan. We'll worth the visit and was one of our favourite places in Kyoto
