Claira On Bouncy Castle
Those socks cost roughly 50 HKD - about 8 dollars Canadian. She really likes them. Turns out they are an Australian brand (seed HERITAGE) that you can't buy in Vancouver.

Matsuyama Castle
Nice tight stonework here. They must have had a good source of stone nearby.

Mark And Andrea On Kintai-Kyo
The castle behind is a reconstruction of a castle that was torn down in 1615. We didn't have enough time (or castle patience) to go visit.

White Blossoms And Castle With Wall
I think it was good thinking to put a plum blossom garden on the castle grounds.

Plum Blossoms
You really don't want the castle in too much focus or else you can tell how much of a recreation it is.

That white building is where the emperors grand daughter stayed.

Us Dwarfed By Castle
I gives you some sense of just how big this place is.

Submerged Gate
This is a convince gate - if the castle was attached, this hole could be quickly filled in with stone.

Multiple Castle Buildings
I believe there are 4 different towers in this castle. Never attacked, the towers were only used for storage and practice.

Selection Of Roof Caps
Each of these caps reflects either the family that was in power at the time or a charm to fend off fire.

Short Gate Downhill
This small gate is actually the way to the main entrance. That courtyard between this gate and the next is yet another opportunity for the people in the castle to kill you.

Lower Wall Of Castle
Apparently this is a common (cliché?) angle to photograph the castle.

Iron Clad Door
Fire is a real concern for castles so a wooden door doesn't make a lot of sense. That said, Iron wasn't cheap so iron clad won.

Five Layers Of Roofs
I like the stone work and how the roof details add up.

Fan Wall
The angle of the wall increases as you go up. Apparently the designer of the Kumamoto castle visited this castle before he built his. See a resemblance?

Castle With Interior Moat
If I had a castle, I would certainly want a small forest growing in it.

Dolphin Ornament On Roof Line
Dolphins (and fish in general) are often on roofs because they bring luck against fires.
