It’s a small but beautiful castle!

This castle in Chiba is nice. Although I’ve seen much better throughout Japan, I’d recommend a visit. I didn’t go inside, but the exterior was moderately beautiful, calming and picturesque.

Interesting bit of history. Most descriptive plaques are in English. Staff is friendly. A majority of the display items are replicas. The interior looks like a very generic, unflattering museum... Nothing about it looks like a genuine Japanese castle inside. But good displays and genuine battle armor on display as well

A short walk from my capsule hotel. The entrance fee is free. The Museum is shaped like the old Chiba Castle. But is infact a modern reconstruction. It showcases the development of Chiba from the feudal ages up to modern development. I recomend to go up all the way to the top floor so you can have a 360° view of Chiba city. When I was there in 2016 we had a freak snow fall. So I had the pleasure of seeing the Castle in an autumn setting and covered in snow. A beautiful castle in both settings.
