The shortest path from Takeda station to Takeda CastleThe way back to the stationYes, but this time it was forbidden to enter.

It is a good thing that such a wonderful castle has been known by a lot of people, but the regulation has been strengthened too much, and it is surprised at the change of the remainder compared with the first time to visit 20 several years ago.
I’m sure that there are a lot of castles that have become rather disappointing for the fact that they are no longer able to freely look around the territory.
