Amakusa Memorial Tomioka Castle 02

Amakusa Memorial Tomioka Castle 02
Raised to the ground During the Shimabara Rebellion (1637–1638).
It was decided that this ruin should be reconstructed as being of Historical Importance, several years work had been completed here by finding, identifying and placing the stones according to the original drawings. Later the Castle will be rebuilt. It is being financed by the World Heritage organisation.
Taken 10 09 2006 using Canon PowerShot A710 IS Digital Camera.

Oh my, that looks so intricately put together. Somehow it reminds me of the walls of Troy.

Yes Bernard, and the Japanese did not use mortar, just skill. I've not seen the walls of troy so can't comment.
Thanks for commenting.

Most of the walls of Troy (Illium) were alright. On the western side though they'd been damaged by an earthquake some years before the achean siege. Enough so that Achilles was able to scale the wall and almost get inside.

Thanks Bernard.
What I show in the photo is only the Base on which the Castle was and will be re built on.

It has taken some time to rebuild that part Peggy. I hope to receive photos from my friend there when the Castle is rebuilt. There are more photos in the album from 2006.
