Odawara Castle might be a good choice!

I had a Hakone tour with my guests on July 4th.

After that,  I got off at Odawara station and visited there.

I found how wonderful Odawara castle was!

Odawara Castle might be a good choice!

 

Odawara castle had been  built by Hojo clan which was wiped out by Toyotomi Hideyoshi.

In Edo castle, only remains of rocks were there , and you can see a few buildings left there and no donjons.

But in Odawara,  you can see the clear image of Japanese castles in the warring state period.

It is breastakingly beautiful and intimidated.

From the donjon, you can see the whole town of Odawara.  And if you are lucky enough,  Mt Fuji, too.

Odawara Castle might be a good choice!

Of course, the size is far samll compared to Edo castle, but it still has a moat which surrounds the castle.

Edo castle was built in a plain area,  but Odawara castle is a typical castle which was built on the top of hill

in order to make it easier to protect itself. 

Odawara Castle might be a good choice!

You can try Japanese samurai's or princess's kimono there in only 200 yen and take pictures outside.

Odawara Castle might be a good choice! 

Odawara is close to its sea side, which means you can easily get fresh fish.

Fish paste cake is Odawara's one of specialty.   You can find a nice shop to buy it near the station.

The expecience of  Castle, fish paste cake, and Shinkansen bullet train!

My wife and I read many of the prior reviews (spoiler: they are all good and they are all accurate) before booking Kyoko so we were expecting a nice, qualified person to show us around for our first day, and first time, in Tokyo. But this woman is truly one of the sweetest people we've met and my family just fell in love with her. We did ourselves an injustice booking only one day with her, but...

She was accommodating and considerate with my children. We...
