"A fascinating history lesson" Nijo Castle Tip by UKDaisy
Nijo Castle, Kyoto: 44 reviews and 97 photos
Nijo Castle was the Kyoto residence of the Tokugawa Shogun. Inside, you'll get to see how the Shogun used to live, which I feel is always the best way to learn about history, by being able to see things for yourself. Listen out for the nightingale floorboards, it makes bird chirping sounds when you walk on them, and this was designed as a security measure to detect intruders/assassins. People are not allowed to wear shows inside, so make sure you wear socks (preferably without holes) as the floor boards can be quite cold at times.
