This is the last shot I'll upload from Imabari.
This is the "Back door" to the castle if you will. The castle is a small one, compared to others. But a land mark in its own right. Now a museum, with lots of Samurai clothing and equipment. The castle is really worth a visit.
The only down side to this museum is that not much is in English. My recomendation is to get a guide. This is one thing I regret not having time to do.
I hope you've liked my shots from Imabari castle. I allso hope to revisit this city. Maybe next time I'll have a chance to visit another castle in Ehime as well, who knows.

This photo really has that "shazam" to it that I felt was missing in your previous posting.
Exposure might look overexposed, but I feel the exposures balance each other.
In addition the reflection in the water is much better here and really serves this photo well.

Hi Halgeir, nice reflection of this beautiful temple, well seen and captured, compliments, I've done a quick WS in order to have more details of the place, hope you like.

A nice point of view and a potentially good reflection, but I believe there is some problem with the light here, which is too strong in the right upper corner and has "eaten" much of the color. Too bad since these buildings were bautifull examples of traditional Japanese architecture.
All the best,
Two points for the nice buildings, but not for the overall picture...
