The castle is a reconstruction as the original was obliterated by the atomic bomb in 1945.

This kind of architecture exerts a special attraction on my feelings, something I cannot explain in words...The same is valid about ukiyo-e - which I knew before coming to Japan - and the only thing connecting me to them might be....that I was around here in one of my past lives (?!)
