Practical Info

The Odawara Castle complex is open daily from 9 a.m. til 5 p.m. with the final admission at 4:30 p.m. Basic admission is around ¥410 ($3.40) for adults and ¥150 ($1.25) for children, with additional admission required for those visiting the Rekishi­Kenbunkan Museum—with audiovisual displays and more artifacts—within the complex grounds. It is a 10­-minute walk from the Japan Railway-­East Odawara Station. Several day trips from Tokyo include visits to the Odawara Castle Park, often incorporating stops at, if not cruises on, Lake Ashi with views of Mt. Fuji. Recent visitors note that the main donjon (castle keep) is being reinforced against earthquakes and will be under construction through April 2016; access to its museum may be limited during this time.
