Something of a reverse angle of today’s photo can be found here.

In the distance, on the right, you can see the top of a giant ferris wheel. This is part of Japan Monkey Park (日本モンキーパーク), an amusement park for little kids.

The barges in the river are loaded with fireworks in this photo. Later in the evening I experienced the show.

Two years ago today, this happened.

Aoyamon (Osaka Castle Gate, Japan)

This week a group of American football players from Osaka, Japan descended on my current hometown of Ashland, Oregon. On Friday they will play a football game against the local high school team. Anyway, two of the players were over my house today. I thought they would be from Osaka, but neither were. One was from Kobe and other from Shiga. To (sort of) commemorate their visit, today’s photos are from Osaka, between Kobe and Shiga.

二の丸御殿 nijo castle kyoto flatland

Nijo Castle (Kyoto, Japan)

Nijojo doesn’t look much like Japan’s other castles. Besides being a somewhat rare flatland castle, there aren’t three or more levels like most of the castles in Japan.
