Kofu Castle

On Friday December 22nd, I had a holiday due to the Emperor's birthday on Saturday, so I took a three day castle holiday, using my Seishun 18 Kippu. I left on the 6:08 am train.

I could see Mt. Fuji from the train.

I got off the train in Kofu and the castle area was only a short walk from the train station. The castle here was originally established in 1582.

Inside the Turret is a small museum.

After visiting Kofu, I returned to the train station and headed to Matsumoto.

How nice of the Emperor to give everyone a day off for his birthday. Kofu castle looks interesting - do you know why there are so many dragon fish?
