A very nice place, but it could use more exhibits. There were brochures available in various languages and the entry fee was very reasonable.

Entrance fee is 100yen. It is a small castle and recently renovated. Very interesting to know how the old and new methods were used to strengthen the base of the castle.

A beautiful small portion of a once large castle. The entrance fee is only 100yen so don't miss out. The clerk spoke good english and was able to give us a small tour and insight into some of the pieces inside.

You may get your 100 Famous Castle Stamp at the front desk. Just ask for it. When the temple is closed, you may go to 市役所 5F for the stamp. 市役所 is closed on weekends.
