Omura Japan



Keywords: Omura Japan
Description: Omura Park is a nice little park in Nagasaki Prefecture featuring Kushima Castle and Omura Shrine. Omura Park is a 20 min. walk from JR Omura Station.

After visiting Gunkanjima in Nagasaki City in the morning I was heading towards Hirado in the afternoon.

I turned into a huge fan of manhole covers here in Japan! There are so many beautiful ones and each city has their own design.

It doesn’t have a main tower anymore, so there’s nothing you can enter. The good thing about it is that you don’t have to worry about opening hours! ;P

Actually it’s better known as “Kushima Castle “. It was built in 1599 by Omura Yoshiaki.

The Ema of Omura Shrine. Quite nice, but not interesting enough to buy one. (yes, I occasionally buy them as a souvenir!)

And I also spotted a cat on the shrine grounds. It wasn’t a stray cat. It belonged to the people at Omura Shrine!

Back at JR Omura Station. Although it was already January they still had the Christmas illumination up everywhere.

It was already getting dark and I took a train to Hirado which was my next destination of my winter vacation 2011/12 .
