The grounds of Inuyama Castle are quite pretty too.Theres a stony pathway leading up to the castle gates which is lined with maples and cherry trees.The grounds also contain some shrines,drinking fountains and statutes including this example above.
Admission is 500yen and the castle is a short walk from the nearest station, Inuyama-yuen Station, one stop down from the main Inuyama one.
Its a good way to stretch your legs and get some exercise maybe a half day trip with lunch or a trip to one of the other historical places on the map and pamphlet the castle staff provide.
