Inuyama-jo (Inuyama Castle)
Inuyama-jo (Inuyama Castle) Review
Inuyama's most famous sight is Inuyama Castle, also known as Hakutei-jo (White Emperor Castle). Built in 1537, it is the oldest of the 12 original castles in Japan. The exceedingly pretty castle stands amid carefully tended grounds on a bluff overlooking the Kiso River. Climb up the creaky staircases to the top floor for a great view of the river, city, and surrounding hills. The gift shops at the foot of the castle hill are good for browsing. From Inuyama-Yuen Eki, walk southwest along the river for 15 minutes.
