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.

入城需要小小地走一段路，但古蹟維持得很好，很值得參觀 如果有需要，門口會有專業的導覽員可以幫忙導覽，非常用心 more »It takes a small walk into the city, but the ancients are very well maintained and well worth the experience, if needed, there will be a lot of money to be busy, very attentive
從岡山車站走一小段坐電車三站到城下，下車後走地下道，有指引方向就可以到達，十點開始前五名可免費穿和服，覺得蠻有趣的，每一小時有五個 more »To take a short ride three stations to the city, down the underground road, there is a direction to get to the top five can be exempt from wearing kimono, interesting, each hour there are five
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!
