This castle is in the heart of the city and is quite impressive. The view from the top is lovely. A classic photo opportunity is a picture of the Kotoden Railway train with the castle in the background.

The park surrounding the castle is very nice. Architecturally, it looks like a typical Japanese castle, but I do like visiting the different castles, reading their different histories and what finer details set them apart from the rest.

OK it is only the ruined stone bases and moats of what was once a huge castle area by the sea. Even so it is worth the modest entry fee (free for seniors) and the garden is well presented.

After seeing many Japanese Castles it's easy to become blasé about them. Takamatsu Castle however, is a little different and that's why I recommend it. The castle is known as the only Japanese Castle that uses ocean water for it's moat. As the castle is...More
