This is a rebuilt castle with all of the interior authentic construction removed. It is an OK museum with some relevant history but even the view is blocked by wire mesh fencing. If you want to use the monorail to its end this is an...More

Now a days it is not a castle but it is turned into museum. The museum gives history about the Chiba clan. It would be nice if all information given in English language also.

If you've seen any of the original 12 castles left in Japan, than you should give this skip. If you missed them or you're stuck in Chiba city, this could be an opportunity to catch some Japanese history on your way out of Japan, or...More

The castle is a quick monorail ride and walk from Chiba station. The photo ops are nice, and the area is not very crowded. Inside there is a museum with samurai exhibits, samurai dressup, and a lookout up top. I enjoyed it.

Did you know that there is a castle in Chiba City? That's okay, not even Chiba knows that there is a castle in Chiba. In 1126 Chiba Tsuneshige built a castle here. However, this is not that castle. In 1455 the Chiba were defeated and...More
