The summer time Seishun Juhachi Kippu (five all day tickets on JR trains for 11,850 yen) is available from July 20th - September 10th). Last weekend I decided to go to Nagano with my cheap ticket.
Komoro Castle was founded by Takeda Shingen on the grounds of two earlier castles (Otome Castle and Nabebuta Castle). Sengoku Hideshisa became the lord of the castle in 1590. Later his son Tadamasa expanded the castle. Komoro is designated as one of the top 100 castles and is an Important Cultural Property.
The castle park is only about a 5 minute walk from the Komoro Station. It was a hot day, so there were very few people around. I bought the 500 yen ticket, which included several museums on the grounds.
