See the historical 15th-century stronghold of Odawara Castle, reconstructed in 1960 to its former glory. Surrounded by sakura (cherry) trees in the nearby park, the concrete castle contains a museum with a fine collection of ancient artifacts, weapons, and armors. The castle fell many times under siege throughout the centuries, but now the stout structure draws scores of tourists (as well as monkeys). Should you wish to purchase a souvenir, visit the nearby gift shops. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Odawara trip simple and quick.

Odawara Castle Reviews
Un bellissimo castello da visitare. Tenuto benissimo, pulitissimo e ordinato. Il museo dei samurai è un pò buio e tetro, ha poche cose esposte ma di notevole pregio per gli amanti del genere. La torre... more »A beautiful castle to visit. Kept fine, spotless and tidy. The samurai museum is a bit dark and gloomy, it has few things on display but of considerable value for lovers of the genre. The tower is beautiful, from above you can see a beautiful view.
來到小田原，想到的景點大概就是在市區的小田原城，從JR車站走過去很近，大約10分鐘，來到城下的公園，這昔日號稱難攻不落的戰國最強城池，如今也變成這樣，一座鋼筋水泥之城。 進場當然要買門票，從外頭看堪稱壯觀，但進到裡面，就通通都是現代化設施，有點像大阪城內部，因為是不倫不類的鋼筋水泥城，就充實內部展覽吸引觀光客，但對我而言可看性一般，樓高五層，雖然是現代化城，但沒有電梯，走上最高層，那眺望風景不錯，... more »Come to Odahara, think of the scene is probably in the city of Odahara City, JR station walked very close, 10 minutes, to the city's public park, this used to be the most powerful city pool in the country, now also into this, a city of cement. Of course, to get tickets, look at the outside, but to get to the inside, on the pass is the present generation, there is a bit like the inner city of Osaka, because it is not the untouchable rib cement city, on the interior exhibition to attract visitors, but for me to seeable in general, high five, but it is the present generation city, but there is no ladder, there is no ladder, The view is not bad, Odahara City is a good one. In addition, the flower park under the city park that time just opened flowers, there is a look at the value, can only say that compared to the city, this flower is better.
Such a beautiful landmark! The castle itself is astonishing but the surroundings are also remarkable. The whole site inspires peace and serenity despite its bloody history 🙏🏯
Interesting castle structure with a nice view of the city and bay. You can go inside the castle structure for ￥500. There's a museum filled with items and historical facts about the castle (although it's all in Japanese). You can get a nice view of the city from the observation deck on the top floor of the castle. It's not a bad visit if you are in the area.
