Nagoya Castle and Sakae

We tried to see Nagoya Castle 2 weeks ago, but got there just as it closed. Last weekend, we were to busy to go. We finally got a chance this Saturday. I was so glad that we were delayed. The cherry blossoms were in full bloom this weekend, and the castle grounds looked absolutely beautiful.
