Very nice place, the castle is not original but it is impressive. Worth a visit.

Beautiful castle. Has five storeys and you can enter and see the exhibits(rare during corona). Photography inside the castle is prohibited on the first and second floor. The view from the top is amazing. You can see Mt. Bandai and all of the surrounding hills.

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.

It's nice to visit here during the full bloom of the Cherry blossom trees. There are also food stalls on one side part of the place for you to chill or feel warm during visit

Just beautiful and at the same time the castle was for defense as well. It stood 30 days against the much superior new government forces.
