#POTW Exploring a Japanese castle
This Photo of the Week is of a model I’ve recently had the pleasure to work with, Allyce, and we shot at Nagoya Castle. It was her first visit there, and mine for many years. Nagoya Castle was originally built in 1610 and destroyed in May 1945 during the second world war. What you see here is a concrete keep, with air conditioning, electrical lighting, toilets with heated seating, elevator, a museum, and gift shop all inside. On the other side, and hidden from view is a reconstruction of the palace, known as the Honmaru Palace, which is much smaller than the military donjon you can see behind Allyce. The original was built in 1615, and the reconstruction began in 2009 and is due to be completed in 2016. More photos to come in the near future.
