Odawara-jo is said to have been built in the 15th century. Over 300 years, the castle had been ruled by the Houjou clan, but gone through multiple reconstruction during early Edo period, until it was completely dismantled in 1870 by the Meiji government. In 1960, the castle keep was rebuilt, followed by the three main gates to the castle. Inside the huge premises of the Odawara-jo park, you can find a rental costume store that will fulfill the dream of anyone who wants to try an armor, ninja clothes or kimono.
