The Trace of Old Dream Ⅱ
The top of the castle is called castle tower "tennshukaku".
It is thrown open now as an observatory.
Good photography is possible.
To look around the inside and outside of the castle.
The symbol of the castle, etc...
The wall is painted with the plaster.
The samurais have to always prepare for many battles.
The entrance consists of it particularly firmly.
I introduce four Japanese national treasures Castle.
Most of these are maintenanced of as construction those days.
Therefore they have attractive characteristics such as structure, interior decoration, treasures...
Himeji Castle / Hyōgo Prefecture
Matsumoto Castle / Nagano Prefecture
Hikone Castle / Shiga Prefecture
Inuyama Castle / Aichi Prefecture
Matsumoto-jo Castle is foundation 1505. I remember that the trace of innumerable swords was left to pillars.
Inuyama-jo Castle is foundation 1469. The descendant of the feudal lord held it personally until late years. However, it was contributed to the country because maintenance cost was enormous.
Most castles are owned by government.
I have been to these two castles.
