The castle is especially interesting as it is quite different than castles elsewhere. It is a fine-looking building and abides in a lovely setting!

For a turret, it sure has great architecture! It's beautiful!

A real travel through the time...To see the turret through the pines branches makes the picture like a painting framed with green. The typical Japanese architecture helps the imagination to think about what life could be in edo times...Beautyful scenery!

What a wide moat! Are the past Japanese people build it by-hand??
