Hikone Castle.


Hikone Castle. Est 1622
This is one of the oldest original-construction castles in Japan & has been dubbed their National Treasure.

This place was so cool you guys! I loved walking around the inside of it knowing little had been done to it other than upkeep & what not. The wood is sooo old and I could just imagine how beautiful it looked when it was in it's prime. My favorite room was the Samurai meeting room. All those years ago, warriors met inside a room of a magnificent castle to make plans to do whatever it is they were going to do. I mean! Seriously, if walls could talk...
