Odawara City is a proud castle town, a major post town on the Tokaido, and with its lively Odawara Fishing Port, it is a modern fishing town, so to speak.
Why not visit Odawara and discover its countless charms?
The symbol of the city, Odawara Castle, had a major renovation completed in May 2016, and is now open to the public.
Your trip around Odawara starts from this shining white castle tower!
Odawara Castle won fame as an "impregnable great castle" during the Sengoku period. With the outer walls repainted during the major renovation, it now shines even more brightly as the symbol of the city. Lift up your head during a walk in the town, and enjoy the fine aspect of the castle from different angles.
