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.

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.
