View toward Nagoya from Inuyama Castle

This kind of view really brought back a lot of memories for me of when I first went to Japan. I used to be amazed at how the urban areas of many parts of Japan just stretch as far as the eye could see. I hadn't thought about that kind of thing for a while, until I decided to post this photo. In the distance, you can just make out the big buildings of downtown Nagoya, that I posted last month (

Notice that the buildings are all quite small, until you get to Nagoya. That's because this is the countryside!

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!

Quite an impressive view of this built-up area!

A sea of buildings. A very interesting view. I forgot that Inuyama-jo is so close to Nagoya.

This is exactly what I don't like about Japan...the uniformity! Any such view can be taken in a variety of places all over Japan! There's nothing thrilling in it, nothing beautiful, nothing with signature, if I can say so.

@Japanalia: It's quite mind-boggling isn't it?
