Nijo Castle

The very first place we visited in Kyoto is the Nijo Castle. After almost half day train ride from Osaka we arrived in Kyoto mid-afternoon. It was alternately drizzling and raining at the time of our visit. While we were preparing to go to Japan, a good friend Joanna recommended that we definitely visit Nijo-jo. When she mentioned that the wooden castle floors were built to squeak, interest were. We later discovered that the floors were called nightingale floors.
Nijo Castle is a World Heritage Landmark
