    ... the castle. Six stories high, all wood, and it's bright white exterior makes it one of the most famous castles of Japan. Since wood is excellent in absorbing the shocks of earthquakes but less durable against the elements of weather, the castle is renovated about every 50 years.

Their house is close to a train station but the walk to the train is 15 minutes down a very steep and narrow hill. Walking back up is the worst! But because Japan has GREAT public transportation, the pain is worth it. When I say Japan has great ...
