The castle is very nice and pleasant to visit! Note that nothing is in English but it.s not an issue as you can still enjoy the view and the little museum inside!

This is a concrete castle these days but inside is a 5 floor museum of area history and armor. I think a nice visit and worth the climb inside to see it all.

The first time I had ever seen Fukuyama castle was in the train on the way to Hiroshima. After seeing the size of it I was determined to get back and explore the grounds. Firstly, it's a re-built castle as most Japanese castles are, but...More
