It was beautiful; many artifacts inside, and it is one of the few castles that remained relatively intact and original from being built in the 1600s.

Hm...seat of the Izumo-Matsue fief. Always wondered if this castle was still extant.

It's one of the more complete castles in existence, built in 5 years, finished in 1611, according to the signs there.

Thanks for the favs, by the way!

[link] This is a picture of the last lord of that castle-- Matsudaira Izumo-no-kami Sadayasu.

You've got good photos-- and I've been to some of the places you've photographed, so it makes me nostalgic.

Wonderful, thank you for sharing that!

I'm glad you enjoyed my photos; I'm a novice at photography, certainly, but I did try to take many shots with composition in mind. I probably took close to 1000 photos total, but only a few came out even close to what I had in mind.
