It has an observation deck and Japanese castle museum, but of particular note are its concrete shachihoko. This shachihoko is the work of Shoun Asano, famous in some circles as a concrete sculpture creator. Many of Shoun Asano's works are on display. Atami Castle has the largest open collection in eastern Japan of the works of Shoun Asano, who is primarily active in the Aichi area.
