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.
