Greetings Keno, Beautiful Cherry Blossoms. We saw the castle from the train a few times, but never went up to it. Your photos show us we made a mistake by not visiting. Very Beautiful.



Keno Kawabata on September 14, 2008

Hello, Richard. Thanks for your visit and comment. If you're still in Japan, you should visit there once because the castle will be covered to repair all the damaged walls from next fall. Anyhow, I appreciate your compliments. (^-^)

Dear Keno!

Very good photo series about the castle. I am sorry, that from inside the building only the corridor can be visible.



Keno Kawabata on February 27, 2009

Thanks for your visit and comemnt, GyurIca. That's true we won't be able to see it for several years because of the damages for several years from this fall. It's nice that a photo is a good tool to keep recording, either good or bad.
