The sequel. So to speak. (The 1st part is the previous post of the same title.) These are the ones taken using the X2. 25 Japanese castles. I am missing a folder of 3 castles. Yamanaka, Hachioji, both are ruins and Utsonomiya, a reconstruction. Rya also had a chance to visit a castle in Miyazaki which I didn't include here. I'm going back to my diggings now and see what set I can share next time. Enjoy.

  1. Dear Rad,

    I love your blog (great photos!), and am contacting you regarding research for a new book I’m writing for ThingsAsian Press. I am looking for insights and quotable comments from individuals who have worked in Japan. I’m gathering information on a variety of fields, such as teaching, technology, office-based business, consultant services, visual arts, music, culinary arts, martial arts, entertainment, fashion, volunteer work, etc.
    If you are interested in participating in this project, please respond and I will send you a questionnaire. The reward for your efforts will include writer’s credits and bio, plus six copies of the published book.
    Looking forward to your reply….Celeste
