Your experience


The imposing Nijo Castle was built as a residence for Tokugawa Ieyasu, the first shogun of the Edo period, and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1994. Come closer to its fortifications, the palace, the gardens and walk along the "nightingale floors" - which creak like birds when entered to spot assassins or thieves.

Once you have purchased your tickets for Nijo Castle separately, you will be taken on an exclusive tour and gain access to parts that other visitors cannot see!

Please note

Additional information

  • Buy your entrance ticket for Nijo Castle at the ticket counter of the main entrance (Higashi-otemon main gate) and go through the gate
