    Sundan:

    Great Pics...Glad to see that others enjoy Japan for more than just the Koi...It saddens me when I hear that people visit Japan and only see the koi farms... Japan has so much more to offer...

    Aloha! Mike

    Osaka Castle

    Dick,
    Yes, it is Osaka Castle, good eye. Photo of koi on the castle roof.


    Construction on Osaka Castle (Osakajo) started in 1583 on the former site of the Ishiyama Honganji Temple, which had been destroyed by Oda Nobunaga thirteen years earlier. Toyotomi Hideyoshi intended the castle to become the center of a new, unified Japan under Toyotomi rule.

    However, a few years after Hideyoshi's death in 1615, Tokugawa troops attacked and destroyed the castle and terminated the Toyotomi lineage. Osaka Castle was rebuilt by Tokugawa Hidetada in the 1620s, but its main castle tower was struck by lightening in 1665 and burnt down. It was not until 1931 that the present ferro-concrete reconstruction of the castle was built. Major repair works gave the castle new glamor in 1997.
