Anybody know why they make these security mask at the balcony, to prevent somebody jumping from there?



Also noticed the elevator, may be the Japanese dont want visitors to damage the wooden structure inside

The Osaka castle is a concrete castle. It was destroyed in 1868 and reconstructed in 1928. Then the raid bombs during ww2 totally destroyed it. It was reconstructed in the 90's.
The interior is all concrete. It is a very interesting museum. At the top you have an observation deck.

Inside there are elevators. The exterior elevators is only for disabled people and goods as there are stone steps to enter the castle.

Nice photos.

I love Japanese architecture, as also all the classical Asian styles.
Amazes me its aesthetical refinement and the articulation with the environment.

Tokyo. The Zojo-Ji temple. A panorama of the main buildings. The original temple dating back to the 13th century was destroyed in the war. The buildings have been re-built to the same lay-out and style as before, but using modern building methods.
Cool, I recognized that temple from the Wolverine movie. Looks great.

Izumo Taisha shrine

Quote:
According to the two oldest chronicles of Japan, the Kojiki and Nihon Shoki, when Ninigi-no-Mikoto,
grandson of the Sun Goddess Amaterasu, descended from the heavens, the god Ōkuninushi granted his country to Ninigi-no-Mikoto.
Amaterasu was much pleased by this action and she presented Izumo-taisha to Ōkuninushi.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Izumo-taisha

at least it was built before 6th century














there was 48m high shrine there

The shrine traces its origin to a Tendai temple built in the Asuka period (538 – 710) called Tōnomine-ji, built by the monk Jo'e (643 – 666). Jo'e was the oldest son of Fujiwara no Kamatari (614 – 669), founder of the Fujiwara clan. Jo'e located the temple on Tōnomine, a peak of on the southern side of Mount Goharetsu (619 metres (2,031 ft)). Jo'e moved the remains of Kamatari to a 13-story pagoda on the site. The emperors Daigo (884 – 930) and Go-Hanazono (1419 – 1471) attached special reverence to the temple, and bestowed it with various honorifics
