Atami Castle

Overlooking Sagami Bay, the Atami Castle (熱海城) was built as a tourist attraction in 1959 to replicate the appearance of a traditional castle tower. It features an exhibition about Japan’s various castles (although Atami never had a castle), as well as offering 360-degree views across the city from the castle tower. There’s a jet foot bath on the first-floor balcony where you can soak your feet while enjoying the views, which are particularly magnificent during the cherry blossom season. In addition to an ukiyo-e exhibition, the “castle” also features a gaming center where you can dress up in Edo period costumes and solve Japanese riddles.
