  6. I always look forward to see all the castles in Japan. Each one has different history and layout architecture besides giving the visitors the panoramic views of nearby city. Thank you for sharing this post.

    **is there a typo error of 'disappointing' scenic points?

  10. Having the apricots blooming was perfect when you visited the castle. I like the lines of the old bridge better than the new. Enjoy your spring, Minoru!

  18. 高知城に行かれたのですか。梅が咲く良い時期に行かれましたね。
    土佐の高知の~~の歌に出てくるはりまや橋ですが、数年前に訪れた時、想像していたよりも、
    小さくてかわいい橋なのだと思いました。

  23. Kochi Castle is a wonder, with all the tiled curving roofs. I'm trying to imagine men up building all that but my mind boggles. The apricot is so pretty, perfectly groomed like most Japanese trees in parks. I had to smile at the disappointing bridge, so neat and colorful. Bridges here are so plain and ugly. Great shots, Minoru!

      Thank you very much for your comment. The bridge is very small and most of Japanese feel it was made for seightseeing. So many people would disappoint very much.
