      こんばんは。 再建されたコンクリート製の天守閣ですが、往時の面影が少し残っていました。

    2. コメントありがとうございました。間違いました。浜坂は兵庫県美方郡でした。川を挟んですぐ西側が鳥取でした。海岸線を観光船で巡る予定でしたが、海が荒れて船が出向しませんでした。

  9. I never miss any castles in Japan when I am near one. They may look similar but their layouts, views and history are very different & interesting too. I love their unique architecture very much. the 2 little islands looked cute like tortoise. Thank you for your beautiful photos. Happy weekend to you.

  13. Interesting series of photos Minoru! The situation of the castle must have been impressive before modern building developments.The stone wall was certainly built to last!

    Happy weekend!
