Night time walk in Nijo castle Kyoto

Nijo castle in Kyoto is a UNESCO World Heritage site (as part of a selection of Historic Monuments in Kyoto) and it’s not difficult to see why – it is an imposing site in the city. We had a special visit to the castle as we visited in the evening, with late opening hours as part of the Cherry Blossom Festival.

The Japanese castle we saw were all very impressive, but it was such an incredible experience to walk around the castle grounds as the sunset and the castle lit up.
