The walk up to this Castle takes you up a street lined with Samurai homes that have been restored to their Edo period look. Once on the Castle Grounds you'll see beautiful buildings and Japanese landscapes.

I went there for its historical value. However, I found this attraction was not so attractive and visitors have to pay admission fee for 610 yen also.

This is an old town with a couple of hundred years of history. But the actual buildings are not that old, and the town does not show compared with other towns of Japan.

You will have an opportunity to ride on a rickshaw. The guides there are very friendly and speak English. There is a guide map to follow and you can taste their local cuisine.

Visited Obi Castle Town in August. Nothing impressive, can skip if you don't have much time. We visited the castle town after the Udo Shrine under a 4 hours excursion from Diamond Prince cruise costing US$99 per person.

Nice place to explore. I wish the castle museum were bigger. FYI, you can't take photos indie, even without a flash.

This was my second visit and I was glad I returned. The feel of the castle puts you back in time. It has a nice quiet serenity, with lots of lovely trees. Don't be intimidated by the expansive steps in some areas. If you have...More

Great place to travel, a nice little village with nice people there. Better to do some research in order not to miss the information provided there. Tickets are required to get into those buildings but it is worth to pay since you can add package...More

Visited so many castles in Japan and found Obi Castle is one of the most interesting ones. Not only because of the buildings in Edo style but also the coupons for visitors to take away souvenirs and snacks from the local shops. It was kind...More
