My Castle Adventures
Why I'm interested in Japanese castlesI'm mainly interested in the strategic design of all castles including how they make use of the terrain and then add trenches, gates, walls etc to fortify the castle.
My Favorite CastlesMarugame Castle and Takatori Castle are probably tops for me. I would have loved to live in one of them in their prime.
Favorite SamuraiSanada Masayuki, Todo Takatora
Favorite Area of JapanNagano and maybe Gifu or Hyogo. They have nice mountains and lots of castles

Thanks Eric, nice work. I saw the difference when you click on the thumbnail or on the little grey square next to it. The strange thing is that when you click on a thumbnail of a vertical photo, the picture appears on its side, but if you click on the grey square it appears normal(vertical). When i uploaded them they all appeared like they should, vertically. I'm puzzeled about that, but i told you i had the same problem on my computer: in one program they are OK and in another they are on their side.

Hello Eric, I now published the page for Asukejô and uploaded a lot of photos of that castle. I hope i don't overwhelm you with these? I saw that my grade changed to Gunnery sergeant. Strange for medieval Japan. I suggest that daimyô should be more suitable. I think it was the rank between shôgun and hatamoto. In my publications of Torigoejô and Asukejô i saw that the 2 links to the websites aren't separated. So when you click on them you get an error message. The link on your homepage to the original castles is broken(or not finished yet?)

Thank you again for your efforts to make this site very entertaining. Kind regards, Paul

Hello Eric, I published the data of Torigoe castle. I'll send the photos later. I'll have a busy weekend from now, so i'll publish the data for Futoge castle and Asuke castle also later. I'll see how i will handle the photos. Kind regards, Paul
