A black and white tiered castle stands against a gray sky.
From an angle, the castle's architecture is revealed.
The different stories are set back from one another, so that each successive roof overhang retreats from the last.
Hand-made cylindrical cermaic tiles cover a roof.

The symbols on the endcaps of the roof tiles indicate which dynasty held the castle when the tile was laid.

A close-up on the tiles shows circular caps at the end of the roof.

The castle commands a view of the valley, today filled with a modern city.

The roof, grounds, and castle wall give way to a modern city and mountains in the distance.
A groteque fish statue attempts to swallow the apex of the roof.

Himeji Castle, Himeji, Japan.
