Shureimon, Shurijo

Shureimon (Shurei gate) was the first part of the castle complex to be rebuilt, in the 50s and 60s. A picture of this gate appears on the Japanese 2,000 yen note.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!
