I think it was good thinking to put a plum blossom garden on the castle grounds.

I gives you some sense of just how big this place is.

Submerged Gate
This is a convince gate - if the castle was attached, this hole could be quickly filled in with stone.

Multiple Castle Buildings
I believe there are 4 different towers in this castle. Never attacked, the towers were only used for storage and practice.

Selection Of Roof Caps
Each of these caps reflects either the family that was in power at the time or a charm to fend off fire.

Short Gate Downhill
This small gate is actually the way to the main entrance. That courtyard between this gate and the next is yet another opportunity for the people in the castle to kill you.

Lower Wall Of Castle
Apparently this is a common (cliché?) angle to photograph the castle.

Iron Clad Door
Fire is a real concern for castles so a wooden door doesn't make a lot of sense. That said, Iron wasn't cheap so iron clad won.

I like the stone work and how the roof details add up.

Fan Wall
The angle of the wall increases as you go up. Apparently the designer of the Kumamoto castle visited this castle before he built his. See a resemblance?

Castle With Interior Moat
If I had a castle, I would certainly want a small forest growing in it.

Dolphin Ornament On Roof Line
Dolphins (and fish in general) are often on roofs because they bring luck against fires.

Us In Front Of Castle
The castle we are standing in front of was built in 1950's. When you get inside it's concrete and normal slope stairs.
