About the author of this Japan blog

“I became interested in Japanese castles when I was a high school exchange student to Tokyo in 1992. I went with my host family to visit my host father’s birthplace of Matsumoto (Nagano Prefecture) where I saw Matsumoto castle. During that summer I also visited castles in Nagoya, Inuyama and Gifu. I visited more castles as a college exchange student to Nagoya in 1995-1996 and saw even more of them while I was working in Fukushima (1997-1999). Now that I am back in Japan (2001- ?) I’m regularly adding new content.

My aim is to make this the most authoritative and comprehensive site available in English on Japanese castles.”
