Hiroshima-jo was built by Mori Terumoto in 1591. Mori Terumoto was a very powerful daimyo who controlled the vast majority of the San'in and San'yo areas. Having outgrown his Yamato-Koriyama castle he built a new castle at Hiroshima in 1599. Mori Terumoto aligned himself with the Western forces in the Battle of Sekigahara (1600). The Western forces lost and Mori's lands were confiscated. He was then appointed to govern most of what is modern day Yamaguchi prefecture.
After so much of evening action, here is some thing to relax...
Again, a location photographed many times, Still I wanted this for my head count...
With a bit of bracketing from the RAW, I was able to present this...
I know that the ground is a bit tilted, but that I accepted to keep the subject, the tower intact.
Hope you like this.

A very nice castle structure rising above the trees, good that you show it off centered and also under very good light conditions, which is apparently often the problem in Japan. I think this photo tilts to the left.
Have a nice day,

Between the green trees this Castle looks wonderful. Nice POV & note. Well done.

an impressive castle with the typical architecture style, well framed on a corner coming out of the geens an the quay/water in front. Finishing perfect in natural colors and contrast with a sharpness to the point, as you know, make your horizont straight hé.
An excellent presented shot.
