Owner description: Rebuilt following its destruction by the atomic bomb, this building houses an excellent museum that traces Hiroshima’s history, describes the architecture and other aspects of castles in Japan and, through videos, explains the construction of this castle.

This is by far a pretty castle. Set in amongst the expansive castle grounds, it towers above with birds eye views to the surrounds. We took a bus here, and it’s a short walk from the bus stop. The grounds surrounding the castle are easily accessible on foot.

Hate to say it, but if you have been inside one castle you have been in them all. Its usually just a small museum inside. That being said my son got to try on the samurai gear inside and it was really cute.

I really enjoyed visiting the castle, absolutely stunning! The museum was about 500 yen a person and worth the money. Well organized, lots of info about early castle town history, samurais, and tapestry. Plus the view at the top is incredible!

For me, I just love sitting outside the castle where they provide long chair around the water ditch. When the morning or evening came, its a really god spot for just sitting there reading a book

Historical castles are always full of displays showing the history of the particular period. This castle is within walking distance from the Tekameya stations. There are many displays with emphasis on different themes on each floor. At the top one can walk around the castle to see the beautiful view of the city and the moat around the castle. At the floor where the souvenir shop is located there are clothing for visitors to dress up like a local or a general of the ancient period. Child size is also available. On a Saturday, actors dressing up like samurai are waiting at the entrance to attract visitors.
