Hi there. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to share our experience of a party at Okayama Castle this time.
Throw a Party at Okayama Castle!
A symbol of Okayama City, Okayama Castle is one of the most popular spots for tourists. If you think it is just a place for sightseeing, a non non. It is also available for partying! It is ideal for big groups (up to 100 people), but it would be nice for a surprise romantic night as well.
This time food was served by Magrid Hotel (there is a list of restaurants that have partnership with this program). Food is allowed only on the 1st floor.
Of course it is my first time in the castle at night. It feels odd.
OK, let’s go check the night view upstairs.
Cool, isn’t it? It is definitely a different view from what I know of. With a drink (drinks are allowed on upper levels) it really feels like being a lord. Heh heh.
To be frank, our stay was rather short (until 21:00 for letting restaurant staff to clean up) since it was after work (Magrid hotel offered a bus ride from the office to the castle though). However, we still had fun and it was something we can’t experience just by ourselves. Neat.
Hi there. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to take you to a quick tour to Okayama Castle this time.
Okayama Castle, also called as Ujo (烏城, Crow Castle), was built by the lord Ukita Hideie in 1597. Many parts of the castle were destroyed in the Meiji era and during the war. But countless efforts (maintenance and renovation) has kept its figure as it would look like back in time.
Okayama Castle lies not far from Okayama JR Station. Only go down Momotaro Street from the station and that’s where the castle is. Accessible by walk or you could catch a tramcar called Momo-den to the nearest stop to the castle.
