For anyone who starts to watch the following video, I’m almost certain your attention will be held for its entire duration! I concede, it is rather short at 17 seconds long, but let me assure you, it is that good.
So, I shot this video on my half-day trip to Koishiwara is Fukuoka Pref. The castle I visited that day was Chikuzen Matsuo castle. Anyway, click play already!

If you saw the last post (Karatsu day trip) you’ll know that I recently visited Karatsu… on a day trip. It was a great trip, and one I’d recommended anyone make, especially during Golden week. There’s wisteria, azaleas, comfortable weather & the very cool Karatsu Kunchi festival. And, at any time of the year you can enjoy Karatsu castle, the Karatsu burger (actually, pretty much a regular burger) and Niji-no-matsubara, a wicked pine forest.
Not much else to say other than press play.
The following video can also be found on Youtube: Karatsu castle.

Following the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami (Wikipedia), I did some googling to find out if any damage had been inflicted upon the castles in the area. I could hardly find a scrap of information even using my best search-engine techniques in either English or 日本語.
Well, you could have just knocked me over with a feather when I found myself over at Anna Ikeda’s Budget Trouble website and found the following video. I do suggest you go here: Shirakawa Castle after the Tohoku earthquake The accompanying text & photos is really worth checking out.

I was asked the other day if I’d be willing to have this site featured on an episode of Bridges, a weekly show that showcases a single content creator in Japan and their content. Of course the answer was an automatic, Yes, please!

For a while now I’ve been in contact with David LaSpina of the JapanDave website. I guess I first became aware of Dave's work through an on-line friend of an on-line friend, or something like that. Back then the focus of his blog was a bit different to what it is now. What the blog has become is a site of amazing, Japan-themed photography.

This was kind of impromptu. The sky was blue & I had access to the car (finally), so I thought I’d check out Kurume Castle. It’s about a 25-minute drive from my house. I actually wasn’t expecting to see cherry blossoms at all, so that was a nice surprise.
Is this video too long guys? Would love your comments on any & all aspects of the video.
