The Crow and the Heron: An inside look at the legendary Himeji and Matsumoto castles of Japan
Geege Schuman stashed this in Architecture
Japan names its castles after birds?!
Maybe because they're thought of as nests?
Oh! That makes a lot of sense.
The Japanese admire/revere crows and herons.
Wow, I didn't even know there WERE crows and herons in Japan.
Nothing like the crows in the Game of Thrones.
Well there's something I never knew existed.
