Yes, I know that I'm not supposed to be posting an update today, but I don't leave Nagoya till 5:30pm. So, Dan and I goofed around with "clickable map images," which, if you are using the new Netscape 2.0, allow the user to click on selected portions of an image on the screen to go to the relevant image or page. So, if you have Netscape 2.0 or compatible, click on the city names on the map below to see the castle for that city. These are the castles I have seen on this trip.
