The original main keep had five stories but this mock reconstruction has only 3.

A nice little castle to visit with interesting stone walls. The moat looks like it was unusually low when I was there.

Visited this castle when I was in Kishiwada for the exciting danjiri festival. The reconstructed keep looks nice enough. I didn't feel like paying to enter it, though The highlight here is definitely the karesansui (枯山水) garden, a dry landscape garden designed by Mirei Shigemori in 1953. I assume the best views of this garden are from the top story of the tenshu.

(If you ever take the Nankai train from Osaka International Airport (KIX) to Osaka City, you can catch a glimpse of this castle from the train. That's how I learned about the existence of this castle.)

Worst castle inside, 300yen for what? Looks good from outside though. Felt sorry for the poor monkey in the cage

I visited this castle today. It is a nice little castle. You can take pictures of it from around the outer and inner bailey, which i found really nice.
