"Castle Town" Odawara by salisbury3933

Odawara Travel Guide: 42 reviews and 136 photos


Odawara is very much the gateway to Hakone these days, but has a long history as a feudal outpost, hence the castle in town.

There's nothing to stop the visitor to Hakone dropping in for a look.

      Not a bad one definitely. Still working my way around Japan's castles. Not sure if I'll see any new ones on my next trip.
