You don’t need to climb to the top to enjoy the views and surrounds. We enjoyed wandering around and down thru a nearby Shinto shrine.

Located in Inuyama, Aichi Prefecture. Accessible from the Inuyama station or Inuyamayuen station of Meitetsu railways. Takes about 40 minutes to reach from Nagoya to Inuyama. The Inuyama castle is a national treasure. There is an entry fee to this place but there are group...More

It is one of the top four (varies with other ratings) among the the 12 original Japanese castles left intact (i.e., no reinforced steel/concrete, elevators, modern renovations). I was here during the Inuyama Festival (a must see event!) and so the castle was packed. Long...More

I visited in cherry blossom season. On the one hand the sakura were plentiful and beautiful. On the other, it attracted great crowds of tourists even in midweek. This meant a long queue to enter the keep, and shuffling up, around, and down the very...More

If you are near to Inuyama Castle, you should visit. You can feel historical spirit when you enter the castle and exactly during going tower by stairs. Before, visiting please confirm if the castle is available to visit. [Sometimes repair / restore could be done]

This a unique hilltop castle, one of (if not the) oldest in Japan, so it scores points on that front. However, in terms of displays/artefacts inside, there are very few. There is an impressive view from the top to give you an idea of how...More

I visited four of the "National Treasure" castles in November. Inuyama is smaller and less impressive than Himeji or Matsumoto. It gets bumped above average because it is not a reconstruction like so many other castles. Some of the old castle town remains at the...More
