Must visit place when in Inuyama. Very serene and enchanting. A lot of tourists but good things must be shared and enjoyed for all. One block away is a street full beautiful shops to see. Please visit the elderly store owners as they are passionately showcasing their beloved hand made products.

It was my second time going to this castle and I enjoyed it as much as I did the first time. The street to the castle is very fun filled with a lot of places to eat and a lot of things to buy. When you actually get to the castle you can go inside up till the very top. You have to take off your shoes and the stairs inside are quite steep so you will need some mobility. The view from the top of the castle is beautiful but a little bit scary because it is quite high. It wasn’t that crowded even though it was a Saturday. I really enjoyed the castle and would like to go back again.

Beautiful original castle. One of the 12 original castles of Japan as well as one of the five national treasure castles. Easy to get there from nagoya.
As with other castles, the steps are steep.
One of the few castles where you can walk along the outside balcony on the top floor so you can get great photos.
Inuyama town is so cute and worth spending some time on the shopping street.

One of the 5 national treasures (castles) in Japan. This castle has an epic history and has been preserved/restored in a beautiful condition. It is a bit small but still gorgeous.

A historic castle, one of the 5 original castles left in the country (not a recreation). Not large but set in a commanding location and surrounded by a shrine and temple. Worth a day trip from Nagoya. Costs 550 yen to get in, but be prepared to climb up and down some steep stairs.

Unlike most of the rebuilt castles, Inuyama Castle is one of the best preserved Tenshus in Japan. Certainly it was repaired multiple times but the castle exterior and interior are very well preserved. Fantastic view from top floor. Definitely a must visit.

Relaxing vibes and vivid surroundings with natural plants. The Nagoya government has taken good care of the architecture. Please come and take a visit of it.

Truly one of the most beautiful castles, at first I wasn't enjoying it very much but the moment I walked outside on the roof of the castle I was taken aback, it was such a wonderful site and it left me breathless, just that moment made the whole tripe worth it for me.
Reaching the castle is also easy from Nagoya, you can access the line that reaches Inuyama station via Kamida line, very easy to find and you can pay with your IC card.
Overall a wonderful experience that I look forward to repeat in another season.

Awesome castle! I came here during Autumn and I must say the view is breath-taking! 🍂🍁

The stairs to the top of the castle is VERY VERY STEEP AND NARROW! So, I wouldn't suggest this to those who have injured knees and easily sprained ankle.

I also wouldn't suggest coming here wearing a mid-thigh or short skirt. You can do so but please bring a jacket that you can use to tie around your back so it covers your upper legs from anyone climbing the stairs from your back (wouldn't want you to encounter some pervs while you climb the stairs) 🙏🏻

You'll also have to take off your shoes. They'll give you plastic to put your shoes inside.

But most of the toilet here don't have a bidet. So if you have a portable bidet, it'd be very advisable to bring so. If you want a toilet with a bidet, you may try to go to building stores outside of the inuyama castle area.

All in all, even if you don't want to enter the castle, it's fine as there are a lot of other attractions near the castle where you can enjoy and have fun! 🙆🏻‍♀🍁

We visited the castle 3 days after the new year. There were many people since it's still a holiday. The waiting time to enter the castle isn't too long though.
It's worth the visit!

Visited the castle during the GW / ¥550 for entry
There was a long queue to wait to get inside of the castle. It was 3pm and I waited 40mins.
In order to get into the castle you need to take off the shoes. The stairs were made of wood and very steep. Also some part, you need to watch out for your head.
At the top of the floor, you can enjoy the spectacular view but it was a little bit scary as there was not much room for walking.
If you have acrophobia, you might be waiting inside of the top floor.

Visited during the first week of Dec & autumn is in full swing 🍁🍂

A straight forward walk from the train station with cozy shop houses along the streets leading to the castle.

A scenic area for sure.

Great historical castle and wonderful views over the river. Lots of little shops and restaurants, great walking around. Inuyama is generally very nice city. It is an easy trip by train from Nagoya station, there is fast trains that cost slightly more but you can sit in front of the train with good views.

This is the oldest castle in Japan, built around 1587-89 period. Located next to Kiso river.

One of the 12 remaining original castles in Japan, and one of five that are National Treasures.

One of the 5 national treasure in Japan!!

Must visit if you come to Aichi, The view on the top is incredibly beautiful and the best for inhalation

I paid 500 JPY yen per one adult for the fee, acceptable!

I hope you have a very great experience here, don't forget to buy something to eat around the gate of entrance!

Good choice if you’d like to see a Japanese castle. Great view from the top but expect to wait on the way up.
