The 🍁 castle was rebuilt as a concrete reconstruction in the 1960s. In renovation works completed in 2011, the color of the roof tiles was reverted from grey to the original red, a unique color among Japanese castles. Visitors can climb to the top floor of the castle keep and look out onto the surrounding city. The inside of the building is an interesting museum with attractive displays about the history of the castle and the samurai lifestyle.🏯🌸

Tsuruga Castle is surrounded by Tsuruga Castle Park, which is rather impressive. The park has well tended lawns and cherry trees, which are particularly attractive when they are in bloom around mid April. The surrounding moat and stone walls, which previously served defensive purposes, now contribute to the pleasant atmosphere of the park.

It was a rebuilt main keep of the castle. New but wonderful. Worth visit.
You can enjoy some photos with old day's wear in the front open space.

Nice castle, nothing too impressive. The walk around the grounds is nice and theres little tidbits of history. If you follow the signs for parking on the grounds there is a cheap car park ( 200yen per hour). Some nice cherry blossoms as well.

Very beautiful castle! The Aizuwakamatsu festival in September is a wonderful time to come here! The castle is a museum and tickets are reasonable, though a bit on the expensive side at 1000 yen, which gives access to the inside of the castle and the tea garden. Beautiful nature surrounding this castle and lots of history!

Great view from outside, but too bad no photographs allowed on the 1st & 2nd floor.
