Osaka Castle goes as far as 1583, can you believe that?!
It has survived all catastrophes one can think of—wars, lightning fire, typhoon. Its beauty masks its scars like they never happened.
When Vince and I visited the castle, a Taiko group served the tourists a spine-tingling performance that left me crying quiet and overwhelmed tears. Man, it was so soul-shaking, it was beautiful! I must book a class for a whole day just training Taiko when I go back to Japan!
If you’ve seen a gladiator movie, you’ve probably wondered where they keep the lions and all the weapons. Well, under the Colosseum is an immense area known as the hypogeum. You can roam these tunnels and explore the gladiators’ backstage.
AKA The Burgos Lighthouse. It’s eerie and rustic façade exudes its history from way back the Spanish Colonial period.
First lit on March 20, 1892. Imagine how much memories it has witnessed over the past century.
