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!

A lovely, beautiful, photogenic castle, the white walls and the red tiles give the castle a unique look. The surrounding stones walls and the moat are picturesque, and the museum inside the tower is very informative and interesting, with pretty good English. The view from the top of the castle is magnificent.

This is Tsuruga Castle in Fukushima Prefecture. Inside the castle you will find old weapons and armor. Correctly, most are replicas or created based on materials.
