Pourquoi est-ce qu'on utilise "dans le château" mais dans une autre phrase juste avant, on dit que 'ils mangeront des sushis au japon?" merci!

"au château" is also ok. For countries though, you can't use "dans", it's either "à" or "en" (au being à + le).

... But au château du roi sounds odd.

"Un château" is a closed place, hence "dans" when you are inside.

Ils danseront au palais du roi. ( Would a king not live in a palace rather than a castle) ?
