The Trace of Old Dream Ⅰ



This is the Karatsu-jo Castle, Karatsu, Saga Prefecture.
It was made by Hirotaka Terasawa (1563 - 1633) in 1602.
He is the first feudal lord of
Karatsu feudal clan (1593 - 1817).



Corners of stone wall draw an arc neatly.
The Japanese castle comes to look like it all.

The building beauty of the castle was a pride of feudal lord (
daimyos).



It is constructed a castle on the hill which faced the sea.
Feudal clan was independent existence in the same way as a country.

It is interesting that current dialect is different every former feudal clan.


Only a castle hands down the remains of the old prosperity and fights.

  2. You have captured the history and beauty of this place. I like the top picture for the way the castle seems like it's proudly looking down on the world after standing the tests of time. It's blends well with the trees but still looks very important.

  3. I recognize this 唐津城 (Karatsujoo), because in the Eighties it was shown in some phonecards of NTT and in some "Highway Cards - 10,600 Yen"!!!
    Ogenkide!

  8. Traducción del inglés al español
    Este es el castillo de jo-Karatsu, Karatsu, Prefectura de Saga.
    Fue hecha por Hirotaka Terasawa (1563 - 1633) en 1602.
    Él es el señor feudal primero del clan feudal Karatsu (1593 - 1817).

    orners de muro de piedra dibujar un arco con pulcritud.
    El castillo japonés viene a parecerse a todo.

    La belleza de la construcción del castillo fue un orgullo de señor feudal (señores feudales).

    Se construye un castillo sobre la colina que daba al mar.
    La existencia clan feudal era independiente de la misma manera como un país.

    Es interesante que el dialecto actual es diferente cada clan feudal anterior.


    Sólo un castillo de manos por los restos de la antigua prosperidad y peleas.

  24. Greetings,

    I appreciate the history lesson and being able to travel from within my room. Being originally from Europe, where history and architecture live side by side as in your country. It is what I miss, living in the US, where architecture seems to change with the seasons.

    Enjoy the weekend,
