Visited the Nagoya Castle in Japan. Hot weather but enjoyed a lot to see many arts on the slide doors and the walls in the Hon-Maru Goten, newly restored in the castle. So beautiful!!

I admire it's fortification. An awe-inspiring combination of.. Ancient time.history.arts.culture.history.tradition. I wasn't able to watch the play but manage to see the artists/characters in their custumes as they march around the castle after the play. Hope to see the play in my next visit.
