One of Kyoto's many castles. Nijo Castle is a designated a World Heritage Site.

Although there is no large "Tenshu" castle tower, it is only thanks to its more subtle visual impression that Nijo Castle is known as one of the most famous sightseeing spots in all of Kyoto, attracting many visitors. It is bustling in its fame for holding seasonal events that include illuminations and cherry blossoms.
Nijo Castle features two palaces; the Honmaru Palace and the Ninomaru Palace, famous for their deliberately squeaky floors. The particular sound made by the floor when stepped on would inform residents at the time of the whereabouts of invaders.
