More info

The imposing Nijo Castle was built as a residence for Tokugawa Ieyasu, the first shogun of the Edo Period, and has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1994. Get up close to its fortifications, palace, gardens, and walk along the 'nightingale floors' – which creak like birds when walked upon to detect assassins or thieves. * Once you've bought your tickets separately for Nijo Castle, you'll be taken inside for an exclusive tour and get access to parts that other visitors don't get to see!
