For our last day in Japan, we’re taking a quick stroll around Kyoto’s Nijo Castle, built in the early 1600s. Nijo castle is a hirajiro, or flatland castle, built on the plains rather than a hilltop. It has numerous gates and two moats, with gardens throughout the site. The lines, textures and landscapes feel classically inspired in their simplicity and reverence for nature.

Tomorrow, we’ll depart Japan for a new destination.

See you then,
