Having see castles in places like Europe, India, this castle was a wonderful experience. Not as grand as what I have seen, but the precision was definitely something I have not seen before.
I had read that this was a anti ninja castle and was built in a way that prevented anyone from walking around unnoticed. You have to see/ hear it to believe it. When you walk on the floors within the castle, it squeaks to make a chirping sound. As there were so many tourists it was like birds were singing.
It is a shame that we cannot take photos within the castle. Honestly there is nothing much to photograph (truth be told). There are plenty of chambers and rooms that were used for various purposes just like in any other castle around the world. Only difference I found was the architectural design. This place was very simplistic in design and decor.
The gardens were huge and very nice. We got ourselves a audio guide and found this very helpful.

Something different after so many beautiful shrines and temples. Guide was good, overall you can feel that they are working to make it an attraction. Personally I would like to see more representation of the original living, so maybe something like small theatrical shows will be a great addition to the whole experience.

Gorgeous castle! So much fun exploring. Pay the extra money to be able to see it in entirety. The wait was long so go first thing in the morning.

Absolutely beautiful. Third or fourth visit, equally astonished every time. Love the sound of the floor creaking, to warn of potential assassins. The garden is also worth a visit and their ice coffee in the shop near thee exit provides a wonderful relaxation on a hot spring day!

Nice castle and not expensive. It's better to go in Autumn (and maybe for cherry blossoms?) for Autumn leaves, there are some beautiful spots! It can be a crowded sometimes though.
