one of the best castles in Japan
There is one point highlighted on my long bucket list for Japan: to visit all of the Top 100 Japanese castles. It is a nice challenge, but I think I can make it:) Okayama Castle, shown on the picture, was part of that must-see list. Because of the black exterior it is also known as Crow Castle (Ujo). The scenery in combination with the nearby Korakuen Garden was really beautiful and something special.
