    Restored and open to the public on March 28, 2019.

    It is a very small castle in comparison to other castles. There is a 500 yen entrance fee to get up to the top of the castle.

    Honestly, it is not really memorable. It is nice, currently fairly busy with locals wanting to see this place but if I were to want to see a castle, I will go to either Himeji Castle or Osaka Castle. Both are bigger and have more interesting views.

    Everything inside is clean and still has a new feel.

    Located close to the Hanshin Amagasaki train station - south side.

    They have a huge gate (torii) that makes a great photo opportunity. The property itself is very small, attached to a very small park.

    As for the actual shrine, it is very small and frankly, very ordinary. You can purchase omikuji (good luck paper fortunes) at a kiosk inside the actual temple area.

    You can see the whole thing in 10 minutes without rushing.

    A decent enough park to visit in spring, maybe not so much at other times if you don't live close by by.

    As I stated in other reviews, parks in Japan aren't very well tended and this is no different b

    Like most parks in Japan, it's not very well tended. The only place of note are the flowers when they are in bloom which are stunning. The rest of the garden is a bit overgrown.

    I visited Amagasaki on my bike ride trip from another city in Kansai. Researching tourist attractions in Amagasaki, the Amashin Kaikan hit and seemed interesting.

    After visiting the historical museum, I was welcomed warmly by staff members.

    Collections of domestic and international piggy banks are so amazing. Having lived in New Zealand and been overseas on holidays, many symbols of the countries are created as piggy banks. I wish I could see a kiwi bird one from my second home country of New Zealand.

    And seeing world coins made me feel travel overseas. Because of special editions, it was a great experience. Who would expect see five hundred dollar coins??

    Getting a piggy bank when leaving is so sweet. What a great hospitality. This present makes feel unique to the museum and Amagasaki.

    I hope I can move to Amagasaki in the near future!

    This is not a destination shopping mall.

    While they do have some branded tenants, most of the complex are smaller stores. The anchor tenant is AL Plaza, which has a grocery store on the first floor. COOP food store is the other major supermarket.

    Most of the customers are local folks who are looking for their kids to play and to eat a bit of food.

    No train station nearby, you either walk or take a car.

    Do not recommend as a tourist destination. Nothing there that would be really attractive to tourists.

    Technically across the street from the JR Amagasaki Station, there is a covered, overhead walkway that connects the two complexes.

    An all full-service mid-range mall with all the common chain and franchise stores represented. Hanshin Department Store and AL Plaza Supermarket are the anchor tenants. The food court on the ground floor, "gourmet restaurants" food floor on the 4th floor, movie theater with plenty of attached parking.

    Easy to get around, not an overwhelmingly huge space. A good place to get in and get out.

    If there is a negative, it is located on the north side of the JR Amagasaki train station and if you are coming from the south side, it takes a bit of effort to get over the tracts and find the route to the mall. A great location if you are using the JR network.

    We will go again when in the neighborhood.
