Photographer's Note

Takamatsu Castle, also known as Tamamo Castle, was built in 1590 during the feudal times. Tamamo Castle is one of the rare sea castles in Japan. With 80,000 square meters in area, the current Tamamo castle is now only small portion of size of the original Tamamo castle.

The castle was well surrounded by ocean water. The building in this picture hidden in the trees is a three stories watch tower. The castle is next to Takamatsu port.

Takamatsu is a city in Shikoku. Shikoku is an island on the eastern side of Japan main island, not far away from Osaka. The land with mountains in distance away is Japan main island. In ancient time, this island consists of four separated "countries", which is the origination of the current name for the island.

It was early in the morning when this picture was taken.
