Samurai Hospitality

Aizu Wakamatsu Castle in Aizuwakamatsu city in Fukushima prefecture  

Samurai Hospitality

Japanese castles and in or around their grounds are popular sightseeing spots. In those places, each local community makes visitors have fun by an appearance of welcoming Samurai warriors and other events.  Although the photo above was taken at Aizu Wakamatsu Castle, even at other castles Samurai warriors appear around you. Several years ago, I went to Nagoya Castle in Aichi prefecture. At that time, Samurai warriors, who were separated into defenders and offenders, were battling with each other. I really felt that action was very exciting and a lot of fun. Enjoy a trip to castletowns in Japan. If you like, I will make your plan of such a trip and guide you with interesting story. Why don't you join me?

We walked past the gymnasium built for the 1964 olympics and the site of the ...

We had a good sense from various books of what we wanted to see, but we...
