Kitsuki Tours

Kitsuki is a small castle town known for a pair of well-preserved samurai districts bordering the town’s commercial center, as well as reconstructed Kitsuki Castle – the smallest of Japan’s feudal fortresses.

Kitsuki is a small town in Oita Prefecture, often overlooked by those looking for a feel of traditional Japan in favor of centrally-located Kyoto. Yet it bears the proud distinction of having not one but two vintage castle districts. The northern district is characterized by high-class mansions bordered by small, well-maintained gardens. The most prominent is undoubtedly the Ohara Residence, former abode of the local feudal lord’s principal retainers. The earthen walls and thatched roof present a highly classical appeal, and the adjoining garden is a lovely sight not to be missed. At the top of a hill sits a rebuilt Kitsuki Castle – said to be Japan’s littlest feudal keep. The castle’s exterior design is simplistic and plain, and houses a small city museum. But what brings visitors to see Kitsuki Castle is the ideal location, having been built on a prominent hill overlooking the Seto Inland Sea.

Please see below for tours that include Kitsuki:
