Quite large park. The castle is definitely interesting to see. Everything seems to be lined with gold. Even the floor seems to shine a bit, even though it's just normal tatami. Most rooms are just that though. Tatami floor, yellow-golden walls with tiger paintings. The nightingale walkway is interesting to hear as well. All in all, I found it quite repetitive and unspectacular. This palace was used to impress the people and show the power of a nobleman. Back then, certainly that was quite something. Nowadays, it's just kitsch ;)
So for 1030¥, it's actually quite the rip-off. Though of course it's an experience you can only have here. So overall I'd recommend to go. Still think the price is way too high.

Definitely a nice way to spend some of your day if you enjoy old historical buildings. The castle grounds and gardens are very pretty. Sadly, even when buying the all-inclusive ticket, you still need to pay more in order to enter their closed exhibitions.

(visits: 3 or 4) one of the best castle experiences in Japan. Despite being the way too overcrowded Kyoto, the castle wasn't any where as close to as bad as Osaka castle crowed. This castle is very unique. Worth checking out. Nice park too.

This castle was really neat. The architecture in Asia are always interesting to see compared to Western buildings. The gardens were beautiful and the moat was a wonder to see with its carp and koi fish. The Castle itself is closed off so you can't enter inside and see anything. I was most amazed by the fact that this exists within the middle of a busy modern city. The contrast of this tranquil historical landmark to the busy modern traffic and city was what struck me the most.

This residence of the Shogun is definitely a must see in Kyoto. Housing the reportedly only palace in a castle in Japan the expanse takes a good 2-3 hrs to take in the sights of grounds & the two major buildings. While the Shogun's residence is accessible the larger palace used by the Emperor when he visits is undergoing restoration at this time. I found the English audio guide useful. There is a charge for that & for admission.
