Some Views Near Himeji Castle

A couple of views near Himeji Castle. I think the gateway is a marvellous structure and I am always amazed at the amount of stone-work around the moat and in the castle foundations. I was sent a photograph recently showing some very early stone-work in England. It was remarkably similar to that seen in Japan using an almost identical sloped structure for strength and durability.
