I think that will do for pictures of Himeji Castle for now; I'll have to save some for next spring!

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!

what a beautiful, Capture...A Chinese model?

@kavita: Thanks kavita. I believe the Japanese had their own style of castle construction. Castles like Shuri Castle in Okinawa show more of a Chinese influence... http://digitalguff.aminus3.com/image/2008-11-14.html

The differences between Japanese and European castle architecture is interesting.

@Twelvebit: Yes; you can understand how people dedicate themselves to the study of castle construction.
