Ninja Castle

Posted in Far East Cruise 2007, Japan, Kyoto, Travel by Dennis Wright on January 17, 2008

Next up in an action-packed day was Nijo Castle – or Ninja Castle as Naomi and I called it, but then we would, wouldn’t we? Nijo Castle was the home of the Tokugawa Shogunate from 1626. The complex covers a massive walled off area near the centre of Kyoto and contains a moat and expansive gardens.

This is Ninomaru Palace:

    The floorboards around the Ninomaru Palace are creaky, not because of their age but because creakiness was built in by design. It’s an early warning system in case of intruders. Maybe that should be an “early early warning system”.

      Partly it is habit. Protection for the eyes is always a good idea. Suns rays can be harmufl.As we get older we realize that we need to protect the ears a,also. Now comes thestraw hat or Panama.Where I live in Fla. I always have a hat with me to shield from the sun. Several eye problems areabated by shielding from the sun. I have all of them so it is foolish not to use protection.
