  • Not go inside Castle 2017-05 visit stone wall and moat as it is and has been restored especially is a little anticlimactic. Not a bad walk, relax and watch. It would be good in Oishi shrine nearby and set.

  • Enter gate and the style looks good on paper and nothing else. Just had the building are separated by white. However, the view from the tower is nice.

  • Maybe something like this ruins of a castle where I said it was. I think little possible improvement of the inner Citadel, goes up, too excited. It becomes beautiful moat of water even a little bit more ❗

  • Conclusion wasn't expected out of odds and ends. But feel that are very maintained as a park and historic sites convey to future generations and their chivalrous kindness of all negative, crazy Castle is a top-down view and not from the ground and no existing buildings. Remember you can't win both castles and monuments. Haicheng is flow coastline of pretty far is it's too painful. My personal impression is sorry. I think Ronin audiophiles can enjoy.
