Kumamoto Castle

This is Kumamoto-jô, the landmark of Kumamoto. It was built in 1607 by the Kato Clan. It was nearly totally destroyed after a 53-day siege but reconstructed in last centuries' 70s. Still some of the wooden constructions are original. However, all the concrete thingses are, of course, the reconstruction.
