Gochaku Castle, Miyao Castle, Iwakuni Castle

This update combines some castles from different trips that didn't fit anywhere else.

Miyao Castle and To-no-oka are on Miyajima Island and were just short stops while on Miyajima, which was the main event. Historically they are actually very interesting castle sites nonetheless. Knowing the story of the Battle of Miyajima would make any trip more enjoyable.

On the way to Miyajima we stopped by Iwakuni Castle to see the Kintaikyo Bridge but we didn't have enough time to go to the top of the mountain to see the mock keep there and get to Miyajima before the tide came in. There are some great stone wall remains I would like to see there someday. This update is mainly for new photos of the bridge and the Nagayamon Gate.

Gochaku Castle, while relatively unknown, is also a significant new castle, as one of the three great castle of Harima and for the close connection to Kuroda Kanbei.
