Japanese castles I've visited: #32 Imabari Castle in Ehime Prefecture. Right next to the ocean, I really liked this castle. Read more over at my blog: http://zoomingjapan.com/travel/imabari-castle/
Japanese castles I've visited: #59 Matsumoto Castle in Nagano Prefecture. One of the 12 original castle structures and certainly one of the BEST Japanese castles out there. One of my favorite castles in fact. :D
Iga Ueno Castle – The Castle in a Ninja Village
Tateyama Castle in Chiba Prefecture - visited earlier this month. Yet another castle I can add to my list.
岡山県岡山城：Okayama Castle on a sunny day in November 2012.
The remains of Fukuoka Castle (visited December 2012).
Japanese castles I've visited: #63 Muya Castle in Tokushima Prefecture. It's not too far from the famous Naruto whirlpool.
