The sound wasn't exactly what I was hopeing for in this video, but you can still hear it a little. When you are under the trees though, it's hard to hear the person talking next to you the bugs are so loud. When I first heard it, I thought (hoped) it was the electrical lines running through the trees, and I was able to believe it for awhile. That is until, I saw the bugs.
Ther are actually two bugs in this picture, but with the ground, it's hard to tell. It's also hard the tell the size. That is due to the fact that there was no way I was going close enough to these things to give you a reference point. If Steve would have been there, I'm sure he would've, but alas, it was just me. But I can tell you, these two, were both bigger than my big toe, much bigger. ewe.
But back to the castle.
They call this a dolphin. There is one on the top two corners of the castle. You can just barely see one in the picture above.
This gun was so long I couldn't get it in the shot from the side. So I came up with this creative angle. Steve liked it at least. :) I would love to tell you why it was so long, but most of the signs where in Japanese, so I wasn't really sure what I was looking at half the time.
And finally, I know it can be boring to look at other people's photos if they are not in them. So here is my attempt at a self potrait with the castle in the background. Not too bad I'd say.
