Hi there. How are you doing today? I have been sick for a while, and that’s why my blog entry was delay. I am sorry for that. I am getting better now, and you don’t need to worry about it.
Well, today I want to write about Japanese castles. As you know, our castles are quite different from Western ones.
During the world war 2, we lost lots of castles. Even so, we still have some original ones. I’ve been moving around many places because of my husband’s job in Japan. Through my experiences, I want to show some of my favorite castles here. I hope you enjoy it.
Osaka Castle:Osaka city, Osaka prefecture
I took my British friend, Maryn and my American friend, Zach to Osaka castle. We lost the original version during the ww2. However, it’s still beautiful and it’s a symbol of Osaka city where I live.
Click it. You can go to YouTube and see a video clip of Osaka castle
Matsumoto Caslte: Matsumoto city, Nagano prefecture
My family and I lived there 7 years ago before my husband got a promotion. Our first dog, lala was alive at that time, and walking around the castle was Lala and my working out. We still keep the original version of castle. I really love the castle because it’s so pretty in snow.
Wakayama Castle: Wakayama city, Wakayama prefecture
My family and I lived there almost 20 years ago. Our daughter was born in the city. The castle is one of the biggest castles in Japan. I still remember I really loved walking though in cherry blossoms seasons. The castle has tons of cherry trees and when they blooms, it’s so pretty. The castle isn’t original. We lost it during the ww2.
Hikone Castle: Hilone city, Shiga prefecture
This castle belongs to my home town, Shiga prefecture close to my husband’s university.
This blog enty’s only a part of our castles. We have lots of castles everywhere from small to large. When you are interested in them, go to google image and search them. You can see a lot of pretty Japanese castles there.
I hope this blog entry helps you understand our culture a little bit.
Thanks you as always for visiting my blog.
See you next week!
