A completely unseasonal series of photos, taken at Himeji Castle, Hyogo prefecture, back in April.
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!
A wonderful perspective Daryl!

Spectacular! I would love to visit here in April. The April I was in Japan, I was sent to Nara Prefecture. So, besides doing the Path of Philosophy in Kyoto, I went to Hikone Castle which has about a thousand cherry trees around it. It was pretty spectacular too.

@Steve Rice: I never visited Hikone castle, another famous one. That's also the original structure isn't it?
Snow White could live here ! Superb and you make me wanna visit Japan so much !

@Alun: Thanks Alun!
Yes, the four national treasure castles are: Inuyama-jo, Hikone-jo, Matsumoto-jo and, of course, Himeji-jo. All four are original. I made a point of seeing all four. They are all cool.
I also went to Kumamoto to see the castle. Some of the turrets are original there but not the main building. It's an impressive place anyway.

@Steve Rice: I went to Inuyama castle last spring also. Another series coming up on that one! But maybe something non-cherry-blossom-related in between...
Conveys the feeling of Spring very well.
