The 7 best castles in Japan






Japan is a land rife with history and relics of the past. In nearly every city and town, you will find landmarks, museums, and historic sites that display the country?s culturally rich past. In fact, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has declared more World Heritage Sites in Japan than in any other country.One of the most interesting and breathtaking elements of Japan?s history is its castles. Unique architecture and fascinating family stories accompany each site. Consider the following list of ten of Japan?s most visited castles.Accessing each location is easy when using your Japan Rail Pass. Why not include a castle tour on your next Japanese vacation"Osaka Castle Osaka Castle was originally constructed in the 1580s. At the time, it was the largest castle in Japan. An observation platform overlooks the surrounding city. Not to be missed is the castle?s history museum, which includes three-dimensional pictures, holograms, and other advanced technologies in its exhibits. During the 1500s, the surrounding park was home to the wife of a Japanese ruler. Today, Osaka Castle and its Castle Park are a favorite cherry blossom viewing location in Osaka.Hours: 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.Address: 1-1 Osakajo, Chuo-ku, Osaka 540-0002, Osaka PrefectureHow to get there: Osaka Castle is located less than five kilometers from Osaka Station. If you prefer not to walk this distance, city buses are available.Himeji CastleAlso called the Hakuro-jo, or White Heron Castle, for its bright, pristine appearance, Himeji Castle was built early in the 1600s. In 1951, it received the designation of National Treasure, and in 1993, it became the first Japanese castle to be named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.Hours: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.Address: 68 Hommachi, Jimeji 670-0012, Hyogo PrefectureHow to get there: Use your JR Pass to access Himeji Station.

Then, walk one kilometer down Otemae-Dori Street.Nijo CastleLocated in the heart of Kyoto, this World Heritage Site was originally constructed by a powerful shogun or chief military commander.
