    That is an absolutely fantastic picture - it's a shame your Grandfather isn't around to receive the praises for his excellent work.

    This photoset is quite the wonder - I'm amazed & saddened at the same time over so many of these pictures. Kudos!

    Himeji still stands, altho it was completely reconstructed/restored in the 50's. It is a wonderous place and a busy turist attraction today

    I visited it in 2001 and was blown away. This is what it looked like then. It's a UNESCO World Heritage Site - there's some great information on this wikipedia page. Definitely worth the trip if you find yourself near Osaka (it's about a 1.5 hour train ride, I think).
