  • 17:38, 25 April 2019 109.155.150.29 (talk) posted a new comment on Fukuyama Castle (Good views from the Shinkansen station as you say, but they get even better during the golden hour, that final hour or so before sunset, the turrets and castle all lit up in that golden sunlight. Malcolm)
  • 18:07, 10 April 2019 Suupaahiiroo (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Yokota Residence (Sadly I wasn't able to go here. The place is closed until 2021 for renovations to make it earthquake-resistance.)
  • 21:40, 7 April 2019 61.199.190.5 (talk) posted a new comment on Osaka Castle (I revisited Osakajô today. The last time was in 2010. I din't had the 100 meijô stamp. Today(7th april 2019) was a perfect day since the sakura were in full bloom and the Otemonyagura, Sengan yagura and stone gunpowder store were open like Chris Gle...)
  • 00:31, 6 April 2019 184.153.249.243 (talk) posted a new comment on Matsumoto Castle (I lived in Tokyo and never got particularly farther West than Kyoto and Nara. I must have visited Matsumotojo during the off-season. Regardless, while Matsumotojo lacks an impressive mountain location, the castle itself is quite impressive and is in wo...)
  • 07:55, 21 March 2019 Eric (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Annaka Castle (Wow, never heard of it. The course looks interesting. If I were a runner I would definitely do it. Maybe you should try it! I'll come cheer you on and then visit some castles nearby :))
  • 20:41, 20 March 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Annaka Castle (Have you heard of "Samurai Marathon"? Or, the 安政遠足. In 1855, the Lord of Annaka had 96 of his retainers do a 30km run starting at the castle. So they hold an event like that annually apparently and last year there was a film loosely based on it.)
  • 03:16, 16 March 2019 Kikima34 (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Edo Castle (The grounds are really pretty and there is a lot of space to walk around and enjoy nature in the middle of Tokyo, but there isn’t a whole lot to look at otherwise.)
  • 12:58, 4 March 2019 138.44.193.202 (talk) posted a new comment on Samurai Residences (thankyou this source was extremely useful)
  • 11:56, 11 February 2019 126.13.104.150 (talk) posted a new comment on Ikeda Castle (I really enjoyed this little site. It must be about the easiest castle site to get to from central Osaka apart from Osaka Castle itself. The tower and the gates nicely reconstructed and everything free. The town has quite a nice old atmosphere too. Thi...)
  • 11:53, 11 February 2019 Findlayjamie (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Sasayama Castle (I had a very nice day here yesterday. Took the bus, and it's quite a trek if you cycled it. A very impressive site with its walls rising over the town, and the palace is very fine. I live in hope that a few more buildings may be added in future. The to...)
  • 21:07, 5 February 2019 126.13.104.150 (talk) posted a new comment on Amagasaki Castle (Sadly the reconstruction is apparently concrete, probably the first for a good twenty years.Still, it might be exciting to go and see it newly opened.)
  • 00:03, 30 January 2019 175.36.9.48 (talk) posted a new comment on Kashiwara Castle (I went to Kashiwara castle to , it was very intence and spooky, it felt that the old warriors were looking at you so you dont take anything, we were there to show respect.)
  • 16:00, 11 January 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Hakusan Castle (Harima) (The Temple is Shoshazan Engyouji. It's really great.)
  • 15:08, 11 January 2019 ART (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on UserWiki:ART/ARTCastleContributions (... plus Harima-Hakusan? An accidental visit for me really.)
  • 23:03, 2 January 2019 119.244.143.140 (talk) posted a new comment on Amagasaki Castle (The castle is currently being reconstructed. The tenshukaku and some other structures are already completed. Opening is due in March 2019. Might get interesting after all.)
  • 11:11, 8 December 2018 Jthaas (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Takatori Castle (There is a samurai festival each November 23 in the castle town. It's great to combine this with the hike to and from the castle. Autumn is a wonderful time to see the ruins surrounded by bright red leaves. It is both peaceful and spectacular.)
  • 11:02, 8 December 2018 175.34.101.49 (talk) posted a new comment on Tsuyama Castle (I was fortunate to visit here at the height of autumn beauty in the maple grove beside the inner walls. The bright red leaves looked wonderful against the old stone walls. There was a week-long momiji festival and evening illumination as well, although...)
  • 07:23, 28 November 2018 147.41.128.35 (talk) posted a new comment on Hotta no Saku (This is the greatest site i've used. sike get fortnite danced on)
  • 11:35, 9 November 2018 Suupaahiiroo (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Hirado Castle (To be honest, as a castle site this was a bit underwhelming to me, but it's interesting enough if you combine it with the other sights in towns. There are two original buildings at this castle site, a gate and a yagura. They did a decent job rebuildi...)
  • 21:48, 2 November 2018 174.57.45.39 (talk) posted a new comment on Hitoyoshi Castle (The direct train from Kumamoto adds to the visit to Hitoyoshi. They do not run often, but there is a morning train that goes from Kumamoto to Hitoyoshi without needing to change and it is very interesting with all wooden interior and booth seating. T...)
  • 20:54, 30 October 2018 126.13.104.150 (talk) posted a new comment on Takayama Jin'ya (This was the 100th castle I visited in Japan and a worthy holder of that title. Although it's not very 'castly' it's magnificent building and well laid out. So extensive and with lots of information about the jinya government. And it was less packed th...)
  • 20:51, 30 October 2018 126.13.104.150 (talk) posted a new comment on Echizen Ohno Castle (I loved the overall experience of this town, though the castle keep is just another concrete one. The curved stone walls were really lovely and the town has a lot of old buildings as well as the Uchiyama and Tamura houses and the folk museum. The teram...)
  • 13:42, 22 October 2018 Suupaahiiroo (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Futamata Castle (While there are much more interesting castle sites in the vicinity (Kakegawa Castle being a personal favourite), Futamata Castle is still worth a quick trip and easily combined with Tobayama Castle. Especially the tenshudai (stone base where the main...)
  • 13:32, 22 October 2018 Suupaahiiroo (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Tobayama Castle (Combined with nearby Futamata Castle this makes for an okay short trip if you have one or two hours to spare in this area. (I made a quick visit just before sunset after having visited nearby Kiga Checkpoint.) The location of this castle is quite dram...)
  • 20:27, 16 October 2018 Suupaahiiroo (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Yoshida Castle (This is a nice castle site with plenty of stone walls and dry moats to see. For a good view of the reconstructed watchtower and its location near the river, go to the nearby bridge (called Toyohashi, the namesake of the city). The sign at the entrance...)
  • 07:55, 15 October 2018 114.179.123.20 (talk) posted a new comment on Takatori Castle (Thank you Suupaahiroo and RaymondW for your detailed comments and descriptions. I got 100 Meijo stamp number 100 here yesterday- wow can’t believe it! The lady at the information “center” was almost as thrilled as I was. I followed RaymondW’...)
  • 17:16, 8 October 2018 Eric (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Takatori Castle (This is definitely the place I most want to re-visit. I always end up going to someplace new instead. Thanks for the detailed comments. I've heard some criticism that Nara Pref. invests too much into developing the famous temples and Nara Period sites...)

  • 23:07, 4 October 2018 Suupaahiiroo (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Oomizo Castle (I found myself here by chance after visiting nearby Shirahige Jinja, a famous shrine. The castle walls here are slightly interesting, largely made up of natural boulders, it seems. More interesting than the castle is the Ōmizo Sōmon, a nagaya-mon st...)
  • 03:34, 4 October 2018 217.136.127.106 (talk) posted a new comment on Takatori Castle (Thank you Suupaahiiroo for this lavish explanation. This makes me really want to visit the site. I discovered that the site is next to Asuka village. This makes me still more wanting to visit the area, since Asuka is a part of Japan where some 100 year...)
  • 01:37, 4 October 2018 Suupaahiiroo (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Takatori Castle (Wow. Truly one of the best places to appreciate stone walls and the grand scale of castles. I highly recommend walking there from the station and walking back via the temple Tsubosaka-dera (壺阪寺, also known as Minami-Hokke-ji 南法華寺). It's a...)
  • 00:49, 4 October 2018 Suupaahiiroo (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Morioka Castle (I highly enjoyed this castle site with well-preserved stone walls. At the tourist office at the station they gave me a great, detailed map of the castle in Japanese. It points out every place of interest with an arrow and some comments (this is the hig...)
  • 00:37, 4 October 2018 Suupaahiiroo (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Itami Castle (The rebuilt stone walls are kinda ugly and obviously fake. If you find yourself in the neighborhood, this site might be worth a quick visit to see a small piece of original wall with a ten'yōseki (転用石).)
  • 13:46, 29 September 2018 Eric (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Edo Castle (Thanks, edited. Its mostly leftover cruft from changing systems.)
  • 07:33, 26 September 2018 KomusoPoetofSound (talk | contribs) posted a new comment on Edo Castle (The History section above needs a tiny edit. The sixth line from the top beginning "In 1590..." needs to be prefaced with </p><p> instead of just <p>.)
