When I went to Takashima Castle around Golden Week, students from a local junior high school came to sketch Takashima Castle.  When I went near the wisteria flowers, there was a very sweet and wonderful scent in the air. Before I knew it, bees and black bees were 🐝 coming to take nectar ~ Even as a human, it was a wonderful scent that attracted me!! I don't know why the demons of Demon Slayer don't like this wonderful flower www I think it's a wonderful flower. A shot from under the wisteria ledge is recommended!! I didn't know that wisteria flowers were blooming in the pond even though I was a local. I'm sorry, Mr. Takashimajo. When I looked at the whole wisteria flower on this day, I thought that it would bloom for seven minutes today to the untrained eye!   On the premises, there is a rare Gokoku Shrine ⛩ in Japan that resembles the construction of Suwa Grand Shrine. There seems to be a rare sculpture.  Every year, I think it's about Golden Week, but it's very beautiful and you can see it. The castle, the park, and the wisteria flowers are waiting 🌼 for you next year, so please come!

The Edo Castle, once the largest fortress, was transformed into the imperial residence Kōkyo after the shogunate fell and the emperor moved to Tokyo. The castle was significantly damaged by fires in 1873 and again during WWII air raids. The moats and stone walls visible around the palace grounds are remnants of the original castle. This location is a popular spot for tourists from all over the world. I captured this photo of the palace during a snowy twilight, when there were very few tourists around. They were struck by the rare beauty of the palace during the snowfall and found it especially captivating to see a lone woman enjoying the serene scene.

【Sea Cucumber Wall】 The name "sea cucumber wall" comes from the style of sticking flat tiles to the wall and plastering the joints to make them look like sea cucumbers. It has excellent fire prevention, heat retention, and moisture retention, and is a construction method for exterior walls that was seen in various places from the Meiji era to the early Showa period, but it has decreased year by year due to aging and rebuilding. Currently, it is found in Matsuzaki Town and Shimoda City in Izu, and in Kurashiki City in Okayama Prefecture and Higashihiroshima City in Hiroshima Prefecture nationwide. There are still more than 190 buildings left in Matsuzaki, retaining their old-fashioned taste. Sea cucumber walls have become rare in Japan. It is regarded as an important resource in the town and is actively engaged in conservation activities. Even now, there are plasterers who can make sea cucumber walls, and in addition to passing on techniques and improving the cityscape by repairing them, the "Matsuzaki Kura Creation Team" made up of local volunteers is promoting conservation and awareness-raising campaigns. The sea cucumber wall exists as a matter of course, but it is only because of the desire and efforts of these craftsmen and townspeople to "leave local resources for the future" that they can be preserved.
