    Visiting the Shurijo Castle Park was more interesting than the temple which which was covered by a huge container. We spent less than an hour there. You could take nice photos from the highest point.
  • Definitely a must see

    Beautiful castle, lucky to be still standing after multiple fires over the centuries. There were dancers/entertainment in the grounds when we were there. A couple of gift shops and a cafe...

    The park is beautiful - still well worth a visit, even after the castle fire! I still go there regularly. Highly recommended.
