Kōchi Castle is a castle located in Kochi, Kochi Prefecture, Japan. Construction was completed in 1611. Much of the original fortress burned down in 1727; it was reconstructed between 1729 and 1753 in the original style.


The castle underwent major restoration from 1948 to 1959. Though no battles were fought at the castle, it is noteworthy because the castle is the original structure, and not a post-war replica, like many others in japan.


NOTE: There are only 12 castles left in Japan that are considered as “original” !!


It is also the only castle in Japan to retain both its original main keep, and its palace, the residence of the local Daimyo. In fact, it is the only castle to have all the original buildings in the honmaru, or innermost ring of defense, still standing.

Miyajima (宮島) is a small island less than an hour outside the city of Hiroshima. It is most famous for its giant torii gate, which at high tide seems to float on the water. The sight is ranked as one of Japan's three best views. --

Mt.Fuji which is dyed red by the morning sun or the sunset is called "Red Fuji".

"Red Fuji" is said to be auspicious.

The glowing sunlight in the bamboo grove reminded me of the old Japanese folktale which describes the life of a mysterious girl discovered as a baby inside the stalk of a glowing bamboo plant.

I hope the peace and freedom of Hong Kong.

In Japan, Jizo is one of the most loved of all Japanese divinities. His statues are a common sight, especially by roadsides and in graveyards. Traditionally, he is seen as the guardian of unborn, aborted, miscarried, and stillborn babies and children who died before their parents.

아라시야마의 운치

Japan is a once-in-20-year foliage weather now. I came across a very nice scenery in it. This is next to the city park of the city of Seto (瀬戸市), Iwayadou (岩谷堂). It was a mystical place so I dont think the park. I am happy that you have found a place in such a wonderful local. Because some people come from Kyoto to see this. This is a very nice light up. However, a very short period of time. (Maybe only one week) So there were a lot of people. However I could find nice place and could take great one. For me this picture will be best of this year. Bye !!!
