Admire the striking black facade of Okayama Castle, also known as “Crow Castle.” Built in 1597, the castle’s main tower was destroyed in the 1945 allied bombing and had to be reconstructed, while two watch towers survived the war. Enjoy the view from the castle grounds, nestled on a small hilltop overlooking the Asahi River, and see the fish-shaped gargoyles on the roof of the main tower, gilded during the celebration of the castle’s 400th anniversary.

Okayama Castle Reviews
Het Okayama Castle in vooral aan de buitenzijde indrukwekkend en mooi. Het gebouw van binnen stelt weinig voor. De indeling van het kasteel is niet herbouwd. Nu is het een tentoonstellingsruimte valt ... more »The Okayama Castle in especially on the outside impressive and beautiful. The building of the inside presents little. The layout of the castle has not been rebuilt. Now it is an exhibition space which strikes us very much against.
車で訪問です。南西の烏城公園駐車場は1時間300円ですが、ちょっと南の駐車場1時間200円を利用しました。入場料は300円です。エレベーターで4階まで直行できる6階建ての復元天守ですが、櫓が2つ現存です。後楽園に行かなければ1時間でまわれます。 more »It is a visit by car. The parking lot of Karasujo Park in the southwest is 300 yen per hour, but i used the parking lot of the south for a moment. Admission is 300 yen. It is a six-story restoration tower that can go directly to the fourth floor by elevator, but there are two towers in existence. If you don't go to Korakuen, you'll be swayed in an hour.
Okayama Castle is also known as the Crow Castle for its black exterior, which is nice for a change, but appeared to be less dark than expected. Visited just as the sun was setting so the castle reflected a golden colour. Decorated vending machines of the castle are always nice too.
You can get there really easily from Okayama station by the trum. There's my most favourite place in this moment of my experience! I would like to be back here in the next spring! Before on way to walk to Okayama castle, I recommend you to get an awesome juicy Hamburger by the shop on the corner. Let's have a great yummy time at the garden side Park!
