  • 16:09, 16 June 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Hyakusaiji Castle (Have added pictures of the castle ruins including original ishigaki segments, baileys, mizubori, and karabori. ART's pictures in the gallery begin with the picture labelled "Sengoku Period Ishigaki". My commentary on the site from my travelogue: Hya...)
  • 10:41, 15 June 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Toyama Castle (Have added co-ordinates for old pictures.)
  • 10:33, 15 June 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Nanao Castle (Nanaojō is a fairly well known mountaintop castle ruin. Nanaojō has an extensive footprint but it is easy to explore most of it by following the signs and trails. The ishigaki (stone-piled ramparts) at the site are incredible, as are the views. The p...)
  • 08:54, 15 June 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Ogawa Castle (Ogawajō is a well maintained earthworks castle ruin with a network of deep karabori (dry moats), kuruwa (baileys) and dorui (earthen ramparts). A locally designated historic site, it is very easy to access. A lower bailey at the rear of the site seems...)
  • 08:53, 15 June 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Numata Castle (Numatajō is famous amongst castle fans. It once had a towering keep, dating to 1597, and would've been as splendid as the likes of Matsumotojō. The castle was demolished the 17th century, however. The site today is a park, but there's lots of bits an...)
  • 08:52, 15 June 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Nagurumi Castle (Sure is different now! My commentary: Nagurumijō is fantastic and I can't sing its praises higher. There are no structures except for a reconstructed bridge, and the castle site consists chiefly of the ruins of earthworks fortifications - with some...)
  • 09:18, 14 June 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Echizen Katsuyama Castle (Have added co-ords for old and new pictures; have pinpointed original castle site.)
  • 09:07, 14 June 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Fushimi Castle (Have gone through and added co-ords for old and new pictures. Better quality pictures would be good here though to replace the old low res ones and my rainy, blurry ones ; D I also wonder if there are any traces of the ninomaru mizubori? It's indicate...)
  • 13:52, 8 June 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Kaibara Jinya (Kaibara-jin'ya possesses an at least partially original (dated 1820) jin'ya building. A jin'ya was a fortified administrative base. Jin'ya contained modest residences for hatamoto but were mostly offices. This sumptuous shoin-źukuri structure was used...)
  • 22:50, 5 June 2021 49.2.77.71 (talk) posted a new comment on Nakahara Yakata (ok)
  • 21:22, 30 May 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Oumi Isshiki Castle (Somehow I thought if I were to reach out and touch one of the unerringly still villagers from behind then it would suddenly turn around, revealing a necrotic, worm-eaten face, and sink its undead teeth into me... Added scarecrow pictures as per descrip...)
  • 09:51, 29 May 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Sakura Castle (Aichi) (Sakurajō is a strange, amusing little site. There is basically only the yaguradai (turret platform) to see. There is no stairway up the stone platform, and it seems so random that one laughs - or I did. I was quite happy with it though, and went aroun...)
  • 16:11, 28 April 2021 161.97.199.222 (talk) posted a new comment on Nakahara Yakata (This is fascinating. I am writing historic fiction of the Nakahara and this information is very helpful.)
  • 09:18, 27 April 2021 103.238.195.210 (talk) posted a new comment on Nagoya Castle (I'm doing this for an assignment, any tips or info?)
  • 07:49, 25 April 2021 Eric (talk | contribs) deleted comment #2029 on Yugawa Stone Quarry
  • 00:20, 21 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Akazawa Yakata (Added (possible) dorui remnant)
  • 00:03, 21 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Atami Coast Quarries (Not surprised little has survived in Atami. By the way, there was a sign at the ropeway which pointed out Hatsushima, saying that it was used as a quarry site, which is how I knew about that.)
  • 23:59, 20 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Usami Harbor & Town (seems like a nice walk. maybe i can do this sometime)
  • 23:57, 20 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Hayakawa Stone Quarry (Great PDF!)
  • 23:57, 20 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Usami Hanareyama Stone Quarry (I guess they changed the shape of the mountain...)
  • 23:53, 20 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Maruyama Stone Quarry (Great detective work)
  • 23:51, 20 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Futo Stone Quarry (These beach quarries are interesting.)
  • 23:50, 20 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Yugawa Stone Quarry (ah, sweet shop *)
  • 23:18, 20 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Usami Nakoyama To-no-iri Stone Quarry (oh there's actually a castle site at this one...)
  • 22:38, 20 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Heda Stone Quarry (That one stone under the boulder is hilarious!)
  • 21:23, 18 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Iwakuni Castle (Added pictures and locations for Kitanomaru, Ninomaru, Honmaru Ishigaki, Tenshudai, Karabori, &c.)
  • 21:07, 18 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Iwakuni Castle (Added Kyokan area photos with some locations of key features. Added samurai residence location.)
  • 18:34, 18 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Takaoka Castle (I've lowered my score for Toyama Castle and raised it for Takaoka Castle, haha)
  • 01:41, 4 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Kuroi Castle (Updated to yellow for Akamon gate (will share some pictures later).)
  • 10:34, 3 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Hyakusaiji Castle (Mighty! Mystical! Magical! These pictures only really show the causeway area and miss the tallest ishigaki segment just behind the garden. I'll contribute a bunch of my own, though it will be difficult to select only a handful... Definitely worth visit...)
  • 10:29, 3 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Takeda Castle (Went last month. Had the site to ourselves!!!)
  • 10:26, 3 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Kaibara Jinya (Interior photography was verbotten when i visited > < What remains is precious.)
  • 10:25, 3 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Sasayama Castle (Hands-down top tier site on the up-and-up. Satou-bukeyashiki also may be open, so check when visiting the Anma house! Local cafe also looks like a samurai house but they couldn't tell me who lived in it. I found a map of the neighbourhood at the Satou...)
  • 10:21, 3 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Odaka Castle (Solid earthworks site easily accessible from Nagoya.)
  • 10:21, 3 April 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Sakura Castle (Aichi) (A column of piled stone without stairs to climb it o.0)
  • 08:42, 31 March 2021 163.49.204.173 (talk) posted a new comment on Hirado Castle (The castle grounds and museum have been renovated and will be re-opened on April 1st 2021. It is also possible to do a castle stay now!)
  • 13:18, 7 March 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Yonago Castle (updated to yellow for Nagayamon on-site.)
  • 10:38, 5 March 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Tottori Castle (The Ohtemon Gate has now been reconstructed and is opening for visitors. This site continues to get more appealing!)
  • 10:28, 4 March 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Tanba Kameyama Castle (Updated to yellow due to all of the relocated gates. I guess this castle is worth visiting for the ishigaki, but I'm still not comfortable with all of the punch-drinkers squatting on it. Maybe I'm just being prejudiced, I thought, so I did some reading...)
  • 09:48, 4 March 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Kasama Castle (Upgraded to yellow due to reconstructed and relocated buildings.)
  • 09:35, 4 March 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Suou Nagayama Castle (I suppose I should clarify that I did actually go here! But by then my camera battery had died so this is the only decent picture I have of the site -- not like there's much to see though.)
  • 07:58, 28 February 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Ina Yoshioka Castle (A gate is said to survive from this castle nearby at a private residence but I could not confirm this.)
  • 07:57, 28 February 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Tanba Kameyama Castle (A relcoated structure - a gate - is apparently located nearby but I've yet to confirm it myself. It has been turned into shop. Structures on site are all related to the Ohmoto Cult.)
  • 14:55, 27 February 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Takatsuki Castle (Updated to "other buildings" for nearby relocated gates.)
  • 07:41, 25 February 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Ojima Jin'ya (Four hoshi for being an epic jin'ya ruin. It would even rank decently as a castle in its own right. Seemed well maintained when we went.)
  • 07:40, 25 February 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Nirayama Castle (Great site. I loved the large trenches, number up until no. 5 if i recall. I also visited the Egawa-toride. One of the forts around this castle. I was reading some review on google - but the chap seemed to know what he was talking about - that said Nir...)
  • 07:37, 25 February 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Izu Nagahama Castle (It's hard to think how this site can be improved other than by adding some more structures, and possibly more info' in English. It's one of the best castle-parks I've visited.)
  • 07:36, 25 February 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Yamanaka Castle (4 hoshi from me. Was a bit rough around the edges when i visited but i think they're still repairing from the taifuu last year. Unique and fascinating site.)
  • 07:35, 25 February 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Motosu Castle (This is a unique and special site. I'd give it 5 stars if they'd only cut trees some back on the yamajiro so that we could get a good look at Mount Fuji and Aokigahara.)
  • 10:59, 17 February 2021 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Hamada Castle (Updated to yellow status for the historic albeit relocated gate.)
