  2. I have heard of this place Yamaguchi as I was told that I could take ferries there from Busan in South Korea.

    Japan always marked the areas of the historical castle sites very well so that the future generations could have good idea how the castles once stood. I saw one good example in Hakata.

  4. おかえりなさい!
    北九州から山口に移動されたのですか。強行スケジュールに思えますが、サッとブログにアップされて、お元気そうですね。予想通りサクラ満開でしたね。遠くから見た 萩城の天守閣がとくに印象的です。

      こんばんは。ありがとうございます。関門海峡を車で通過してみたくて北九州空港から行きました。天気が良くなかったので、行くところを減らし楽な旅をしてきました。

  7. Wonderful again!! These are so gorgeous views and sights! Such impressive architecture of landscape, and lots of wonders in beautiful pictures. They look quite like a story book illustrations! Impressed by the Ichinosaka river with the cherry trees bloomed and Rurikoji temple...But all of the aspects are amazing!
    Best regards in Spring!
