What to Expect
・The highlight of this tour is Kakegawa Castle, which was originally built about 500 years ago and flourished in the Edo Period. Although the castle tower was destoryed in the earthquake of 1854, it was rebuilt in 1994, using the original blueprints from 1644. The guide explains the history of the castle.
・The present structure of the Ninomaru Palace was built in the late Edo Period. Taking off our shoes, we can tour the inside, and the guide explains how each room was used.
・You can also taste the local Kakegawa green tea served in the authentic, traditional-style tea house.
