A beautiful historic Japanese castle over 400 years old. It was a very open and large complex with much to see. The self-paced tour was easy and relaxing and best for us. A wonderful experience and we look forward to visiting there again. The gardens were great!

An easily accessible Castle, which makes it a great place to go if you have a few extra hours. The architecture is intricate and beautiful, as you would expect. If you do not want to pay the price of admission, the front gate is still a good place to take pictures, as well as walking around the outside wall.

As you may already know this is a must in Kyoto. I visited in January 2020, and the castle was under reconstruction, so we couldn’t enter, but we visited the palace, which was magnificent and totally worth our time and money. The wall paintings are really unique. The entrance fee is 1030 yen, and you also get to see some beautiful gardens around the palace and the garden. Finally there is a gallery with entrance fee of 200yen.

Beautiful castle and wonderfully restored. This was the highlight of my trip to Kyoto. I spent about an 1-1.5 hrs there, but wish I'd had more time to see the gardens. Worth the price of admission. There is an art museum with the original paintings on the grounds that I unfortunately didn't have time to enter. I'd give myself another hour if I could go back, especially if I were visiting during the growing season.

It’s a very pretty place. Definitely for history buffs if you’re keen in understanding the history of Japan. Shogun and Emperors. For me, it was more of a walk. Get the audio headset if you want more information. I went in autumn and it was beautiful!
