A photo from my archives. When I took this, I wasn’t happy with how it turned out but I didn’t have enough editing skills to fix it. So nearly two years later I had another shot at it and was much more pleased with the result.

From Wikipedia:

Osaka Castle is a Japanese castle in Chuo-ku, Osaka, Japan… It is one of Japan’s most famous castles, and played a major role in the unification of Japan during the sixteenth century of the Azuchi-Momoyama period.

The main tower of Osaka Castle is situated on a plot of land roughly one kilometer square. It is built on two raised platforms of landfill supported by sheer walls of cut rock, using a technique called Burdock piling, each overlooking a moat. The central castle building is five stories on the outside and eight stories on the inside, and built atop a tall stone foundation to protect its occupants from sword-bearing attackers.
