  • 20:09, 16 November 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Kurume Castle (Ah, I edited it to Akizuki. Level up!)
  • 20:03, 16 November 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Kurume Castle ((one of the pictures for Tashiro-bukeyashiki in Akizuki has crept in at the end here))
  • 22:05, 13 November 2019 Eric (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Iwadono Castle (Interesting. I was just there in January after the trail was reopened again. I wonder if it was closed from a recent typhoon again? I've got great pics I'll be uploading... soonish.)
  • 12:46, 11 November 2019 126.200.123.211 (talk) posted a new comment on Iwadono Castle (Attempted the hike but it looks like the route from the visitor center is closed. Have to take alternate paths from other sides of the mountain.)

  • 12:40, 10 November 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Yoshinogari (Bloody brilliant. This is perhaps one of the largest reconstruction efforts in the country. I recommend spending the whole day here.)
  • 12:38, 10 November 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Kokura Castle (A major site. Some very curious castle-inspired structures can be found around here too. The keep is historically inaccurate but they inform visitors about this in the museum. The worst thing about this castle is its ugly, intrusive neighbours, great b...)
  • 12:35, 10 November 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Iwaya Castle (There's some features of a Sengoku Period yamajiro as you would expect but not too many. But it's really great if you come here for the view of Dazaifu!)
  • 12:34, 10 November 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Ono Castle (Chikuzen-Ohno Castle is the foremost of its kind and impossibly vast with fantastical, climbing, undulating, valley-spanning ishigaki in parts. KODAI YAMAJIRO - they're a thing! haha. Especially in Kyushu. Another example on this site is Yashima Castle.)
  • 12:32, 10 November 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Tsukikuma Castle (Decent site, and very mysterious with all those caves. You can see lots of different ishigaki methods here in a very small area. The tenshudai collapsed in an earthquake in recent times but has been restored; the stones on one side appear newer. The ca...)
  • 12:30, 10 November 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Saga Castle (I enjoyed this site and thought highly of the restorations. It's just a shame so much had to be restored in the first place. Even though I wouldn't mind paying, entry into the honmaru goten is free. I even got a free tour in (passable) English.)
  • 12:29, 10 November 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Fukuoka Castle (Somewhat underrated, I felt this castle had much to offer in terms of structures, ishigaki, and nawabari. Unfortunately I was restricted access from the tenshudai.)
  • 12:28, 10 November 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Akizuki Castle (I rate this site highly for the castle town, bukeyashiki and quaint ruins.)
  • 12:26, 10 November 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Kurume Castle (Added Sakamoto-bukeyashiki)
  • 12:25, 10 November 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Akizuki Castle (Added the Tashiro-bukeyashiki and the Hisano-bukeyashiki.)

  • 09:12, 10 November 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on 41 new castle profiles from ART (It's been lots of fun!!!)
  • 08:53, 10 November 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Amagasaki Castle (i have generously revised my score to a 2 after revisiting to see the new tower. some of the displays were interesting.)

  • 18:27, 3 November 2019 Eric (talk | contribs) deleted comment #1183 on Kamei Castle
  • 09:24, 10 October 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Kurosawa Residence (Shame it's not still at the castle really. By the way, I'm not saying it should be, because it's a relocated home, but just in case you intended for it to be, Kubota Castle isn't on the map of castles with bukeyashiki. Also, have you been to the reco...)
  • 09:17, 10 October 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Hakusan Castle (Harima) (I feel obliged to return here and uncover some actual remains. Not a bad idea since, as I said, the temple Engyouji is really great.)
  • 12:13, 9 October 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Ogimachi Castle (I'll totally inflate its score for the view, like ^o^)
  • 12:11, 9 October 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Nagoya Castle (Updated my rating to a 5 with the reconstructed go'ten now complete ^ ^")

  • 12:02, 9 October 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Arikoyama Castle (I think one of your pinpoints has gone awry, placing the honmaru in the river!)
  • 12:00, 9 October 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Matsusaka Gojoban Yashiki (The terraced (nagaya) bukeyashiki at Matsusaka Castle. These rowhouses each have their own projecting genkan and backspaces, so they're very splendid and cosy.)
  • 11:53, 9 October 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Oya Residence (Too bad it's not open to us plebs.)
  • 11:52, 9 October 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Nomura Residence (It seems to have been significantly augmented over time.)

An earlier castle, called Kaizujō, had been built on this site by Takeda Shingen in 1560 as part of his campaign to conquer Shinano Province from Uesugi Kenshin. Sanada Yukimichi, the 3rd S...)

  • 11:00, 9 October 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Kaminoyama Castle (When I visited Kaminoyama I had a lot of fun visiting the samurai homes, but the weather was not clement.
