This is the inner most mote around the castle with cherry blossoms.
Elders Steele and Wintz.
Sisters Glenn, McIntyre and Yamashita with the bamboo. Not sure what they are doing?
Another castle shot. People love to picnic under the trees this time of year and there are lots of people around to talk to!
Here is a group of missionaries. Yamashita, Glenn, Sorensen, Throop, Mizuguchi, Wintz, Steele, Remund, Varjao, Rasmussen, Merrick and Payne.
This is a shot from the front of the castle. It is about 400 years old and one of the largest still existing in Japan. The grounds are very spacious and you can see the castle from miles away as it stands high in the center of the valley.
Outside the walls, vendors are selling traditional Japanese festival food. That what I call it anyway.
