The views from Atami Castle are breathtaking at night you can enjoy views that are called the “Oriental Monaco”.  In addition, in spring you can enjoy cherry blossoms and in summer you can enjoy watching fireworks being set off from Atami Castle and feel like you are lord of the castle!
Around Atami Castle there are other theme parks for adults such as the “Atami Adult Museum”, “Atami Trick Art Museum” and other entertainment spots!  Come as a family, a couple or group and delight in various forms of entertainment.
