Sightseeing and activities
A short three-minute drive takes you from Odawara Station to the majestic Odawara Castle. This castle enjoyed a remarkable period of prosperity that stretched from the turbulent Sengoku or “Warring States” period (1467–1603) to the end of the Edo period (1603–1867). During the Edo period, it was under the leadership of the legendary shogun, Tokugawa Ieyasu. Odawara Castle offers a truly breathtaking spectacle in spring. Rows upon rows of 300 blossoming cherry trees transform the castle grounds into a scene of beauty, giving you a deeper appreciation of Japanese history and culture. After enjoying the historical grandeur of Odawara Castle, complete your Odawara experience with a visit to Odawara Kamaboko Street. Odawara’s local delicacy of kamaboko (a type of steamed fish cake) is delightful, and the street is just a five-minute drive from Odawara Castle Park.
