We had a few hours spare while in Shingu and chose to visit the castle ruins. While only ruins, the grounds were fairly expansive and made for a relaxing walk as we were the only people there at the time and it provided a nice bit of nature in the middle of the city. While probably nothing exceptional compared to other castle ruins throughout Japan (this was the only one we visited so can't make a good comparison), it gives an excellent view of Shingu as it is the highest point in the area, besides for the surrounding mountains. Definitely worth visiting if you are staying in Shingu or have some spare time while in the area, but nothing worth going well out of your way to see.
