Lovely castle in Kakegawa - complete with moat, secret floors, weaponry and views! The day we visited there were also a large number of Ninja's on patrol around the castle grounds which made for excellent photos and really good fun!

Japanese castles are so interesting, even when you don't know all that much about the history. The gardens here are lovely, too.
