Now a days it is not a castle but it is turned into museum. The museum gives history about the Chiba clan. It would be nice if all information given in English language also.

The castle is a quick monorail ride and walk from Chiba station. The photo ops are nice, and the area is not very crowded. Inside there is a museum with samurai exhibits, samurai dressup, and a lookout up top. I enjoyed it.

Did you know that there is a castle in Chiba City? That's okay, not even Chiba knows that there is a castle in Chiba. In 1126 Chiba Tsuneshige built a castle here. However, this is not that castle. In 1455 the Chiba were defeated and...More
