Castle at sunset


This is a picture of Osaka castle which is often said to be one of the three greatest castles in Japan along with Himeji castle and Kumamoto castle. But this castle was rebuilt in 1931 with modern technology, so it looks a little bit flashy.

夕暮れの城

これは姫路城、熊本城と並び日本三名城と称されることもある大阪城である。復元天守閣なので些か安っぽく見えるが日没時はなかなか味わいがある。

  1. Very nice pic for a great castle. This is the first thing I remind from Osaka as saw it from the plane beore landing the first time I went there. If my memory isn't wrong, inside is not a castle anymore, but just a museum. I also visted the one in Kumamoto, but do not remind the inside anymore.
