The castle is amazing. It is in pristine condition. I visited the market located inside the castle and everyone, including the staff were very nice. You can enjoy yourself and queue up to look at the rooms in the historical site. There are guides and maps everywhere in the area so you won't get lost. There are facilities located in the main entrance. I consider this one of the most beautiful castles in Japan.
Was a nice sunny albeit cold winter day to visit. The sun made everything look so beautiful, with the trees turning brown thus lots of golden hue all around. nice vibe. Good place to bring the children to see the gardens and the castle but too bad the castle was off limits.
