Shirofune experience

Shigeki Naganuma

Feb 6, 2018

Takamatsu Castle is known as one of the three Mizujiro, or “castles on the sea”, in Japan. Built along the waterfront, it features a unique saltwater moat that draws directly from the Seto Inland Sea. Here, you’ll be able to take a boat ride around the canal surrounding the castle. As the water comes directly from the sea, you can actually see fishes like red snappers swimming right below you.

Enjoy the serene landscape and get a closer look at the majestic castle as you cruise along. The ride takes about 30 minutes, and costs 500 yen per trip. The ride operates from 9am to 5pm daily, and each boat departs every 30 minutes. They close from December to February though, so do take note if you’re planning on visiting during that time.

Takamatsu Castle is a 14-minute walk from the JR Takamatsu Station, and a 10-minute walk from the Kotoden Kotohira Line Takamatsu-ko Station. Admission to the castle park is at 200 yen per adult, for anyone above 16.

日本三大水城である高松城では、お堀の外側に広がる水辺を「玉藻丸」という舟に乗って周ることができます。しかも、水は瀬戸内海から引いており、鯛なども泳いでいるので、観光で歩き回った足の疲れや心を癒してくれます。間近でみられる天守台の迫力や、船頭さんの愉快なお話を楽しんでみてください。日本ならではの思い出に残る体験ができますよ。乗舟体験は30分で、大人は500円です。9時から17時までの30分間隔で運行しています。12月〜2月の3ヶ月間は運休なのでお気をつけください。
