UNESCO Katsuren-jo Okinawa, Japan: Travel Photo Thursday

Katsuren-jo (Castle) is one of  five UNESCO World Heritage Castles in Okinawa, Japan.  This photo was taken back in October of 2008 and I titled it "Stairway to Heaven".

It was a catchy title and the judges liked it when I entered it in a contest but, I was only foolin'. Heaven ain't up there.  I checked it out for ya. It's a good climb, up all the stairs, and you get a great view of the surrounding area on a clear day. Maybe, even meet some pretty girls up there. But, there's no ice cream or even a place to buy coffee. That's how I know it ain't heaven.

This will be my weekly contribution to Budget Travelers Sandbox TRAVEL PHOTO THURSDAY

If you're really interested in visiting the Five UNESCO Castles on Okinawa CHECK HERE for the details and you can get my directions, advice on what to wear, costs and even a link to the Official Government Website, just in case ya think I'm foolin' around, again !

The Quarter Million Views must have happened while I was asleep last night and the crazy meter just keeps on going. I'm still waiting to see if anyone snapped a screenshot. I hope someone did, because I really appreciate people visiting my blog, looking at my photos and maybe, even reading the nonsense I ramble on about. Thank you all !
