... areas were accessible and I was able to see the castle in its very whitest appearance. Slight downside: this makes the castle an even bigger tourist attraction than it already is, so I wasn't the only one when I arrived there 20 minutes before opening time.

... areas of the castle. We learned that each major family that had occupied the castle had a unique design imprinted upon the end tiles of the roof. The level of detail is stunning. Upon entering, we were in a shoe-removal area, and put our shoes into bags to carry around with us.

The interior of the castle was quite dark, although the numerous windows were unshuttered. The wooden floors creaked and echoed ...

... 20 minutes away by train (and probably 180yen) and then another 15 minutes on the bus (200 yen). At the base of the mountain you take a cable car up to actual park (570yen 1 way, 1000yen both ways). Mt. Rokko is 931m high and oversees nearly the entire metropolitan area. There are several observation decks, a botanical garden, and shops along the way. We stopped at an observation deck once we got off the cable car and got some great pictures. We ...
