Take a leisurely stroll around the 16th-century remains of Kofu Castle, once a formidable castle, now a park, commonly used by locals for relaxing and walking. Following the original castle's abandonment in 1877, the government dismantled the historic site bit by bit until 1930. Today a plethora of plaques around the park give you an idea of what the castle once looked like by explaining where old castle features such as walls and doors stood. You can still find some of the original walls and steps, particularly around the outskirts of the site, however mostly flat green grassy patches and newly built footpaths remain.

Kofu Castle reviews
Great Fuji-san views of this castle ruin once owned by the powerful daimyo Takeda-san
Had a good stroll here. The remains of the castle are under construction, but very well maintained. You can see Mt. Fuji on very clear days.
