Japanese Castles Vacation Packages

Japan is particularly well-known for its castles. At one point in the late feudal period around the turn of the 17th century, there were 5,000 castles; today there are over 100 open to the public, which are either fully restored or in ruins. Some castles, such as the ones in Matsue and Kochi in Shikoku, are completely unchanged from their 17th century zenith. From Hokkaido to Okinawa, the castles of Japan educate visitors on what life was like during the late feudal and early Tokugawa shogunate eras.
