Moving Kintaikyo Bridge to Iwakuni Castle
I moved from Kintaikyo Bridge to Iwakuni Castle.
I rode on ropeway to go to the castle.
Then, I walked for about five minutes.
Now I arrived at Iwakuni Castle.
Family emblems of the castle owner were embedded in the tile.
I will go inside the castle.
Display of Kintaikyo Bridge.
View from the top of the castle.
After observing the inside of the castle, I went around the castle.
I took several photos of the castle from various angles.
There were also autumn leaves near the castle.
Then, I left Iwakuni Castle and wend back.
Soft cream at Sasaki-ya Kojiro Shoten
Before I left Iwakuni, I bought a soft cream at Sasaki-ya Kojiro Shoten, as there were many shops that sold soft cream around there.
There were many variety of soft creams.
I bought “CREMIA”, which a shop staff recommended.
That’s it for the article about Iwakuni Castle. As I mentioned in the previous article, there is a combination ticket for Kintaikyo Bridge, Ropeway and Iwakuni Castle, so if you have a chance to visit Iwakuni, I would recommend you visit Kintaikyo Bridge and Iwakuni Castle first.
Now, I left Iwakuni and moved to Miyajima. From the next article, I will write about Miyajima. In particular, my main objective of this trip was to visit Itsukushima Shrine in Miyajma, so I will write about Itsukushima Shrine in three articles – (1) daytime with high tide, (2) daytime with low tide and (3) evening and night 🙂
