It was closed when we arrived but nice to see all the same. We were unlucky with the weather for our time here.

It took 20 min from the Hamamatsu station to walk to the castle. There is a good walking path and Japanese garden to enjoy after long meeting at the congress center.

I personally disapprove this kind of waste of money to build replicas of something we don´t know how it looked like. A castle made out of concrete. The castle itself gets a thumb down from me but the surrounding parks and gardens were designed tastefully...More

I understand there is a bus that can take you to the Hamamatsu Castle but we decided to take a leisure walk instead. We were at a hotel by the train station and it took about 20-25 minutes. The castle is not as big as...More

The castle itself is not something that is tremendously interesting, but it sits at the top of the park, and provides a nice focus for a walk in the park.
