A Visit To Nijo Castle Before Flying Home

Japan Day 10: A Visit To Nijo Castle Before Flying Home

On our final day in Japan, we woke up early for a visit to Nijo Castle before our flight home. Nijo Castle was built as the residence of the first shogun of the Edo period in 1603. The castle is divided into three sections, with a primary circle of defense, a secondary circle of defense, and a circle of gardens that encapsulate both.
