Osaka, Japan.

Osakajo ('jo' means castle) is a very impressive looking castle atop the high rock walls you can see and surrounded by a moat (out of frame). Unfortunately I was 20min too late to check it out more closely and see all the great old stuff inside. The place looked fantastic through binoculars at sunset, - especially the gold tigers on the side of the top level and the fish-tail features at the gable-tops/ridge-ends.
