TheBrickster, how did you discover the secret location of the Imperial Regalia of Japan which is also known as the “Three Sacred Treasures of Japan”? Is this a dream? We are actually inside the Tokyo Imperial Palace where one of these sacred treasures resides. TheBrickster, I have to give you thumbs up for this feat of yours. You sure have wide connections even in the oriental hemisphere.
Let me explain. These jewels are actually one single item that forms the rare necklace known as the “Yasakani no magatama”. This necklace stands for benevolence, and is one of the three treasures used in the ceremony of imperial ascension. I remembered something interesting about this section. It was rumored that this section of the building is filled with many dangerous bobby traps and guards to deter thieves and ninja from stealing it and the talented builder never leave its name in the books of history, except leaving this weird initials “T.B”. I wonder what it supposed to represents.
TheBrickster, I am getting the shivering feeling of that black wall over there. It feels like as if there is someone standing at that wall hiding in the shadows. Shall we move on and get out of here?
TheBrickster, come over here quickly. We have arrived in Himeji right on schedule. Look at the facade of this old Japanese Castle which has exists for many hundred of years withstanding the test of time. This castle was built by the Master Carpenter of Japan who is known as 007. He was famous for building Japanese ancient oriental architecture during that period.
Most of us might find the White Egret Castle similar to the famous Himeji Castle. In fact, rumors have spoken and foretold that the Master Carpenter was actually inspired by the Himeji Castle elegant majestic design and vowed to build one for the mighty Shogun Tokugawa whom was even more powerful that the existing emperor during the Edo period of Japan.
Look at those menacing fearsome guards standing at the front of its entrance. Do we have to show our tickets in order to get inside? I think we should use the balloon and hop into the back of their courtyard without them detecting.
TheBrickster, here we are. We have finally reached Nikko Shrine safely. Take a look at the lush green environment which simply takes your breath away from the calm soothing environment. The building is as majestic as the pagoda, filled with rich scarlet oriental paint with traditional roof tiles made more than hundred years ago. Nikko Shrine was built by the respectable shrine builder known as Triathletus in Japan and built this in the Nikko region.
This is the very place, where the villagers climb up the high mountains to the top of the cliff daily, to pray to their God or commonly known to them as Kami. Kami’s existence takes in many forms such as sun, mountains and rivers. For many hundred of years, the Shinto beliefs are still very strong in these villagers. In this present moment, this famous architecture are protected by the government and declared as National Treasure. TheBrickster, shall we head inside and take a closer look at the beautiful sakura blooms.
This is just so amazing! TheBrickster, take a look at this. This Japanese Castle is so magnificent. It is majestic and tall, which has retained the original oriental structure over time. Rumors once said that it was actually built by BallChoi, a mysterious Feudal Castle Builder which served the Shogun during the warring periods.
There is not many castles left in Japan, as most of it are demolished or destroyed during the change towards Meji Government and WWII. However, there are still some historical castles such as Himeji Castle and Nagoya Castle remained until this very day, where they are declared as “National Treasure” by the Japanese Government.
Look over there, the Shogun escorted by the Samurai have just stepped out of the castle. Let’s get out of here, before they assumed we are trespassers.
Isn’t Kyoto a beautiful place to be in? This ancient Capital city used to reside Japan’s Divine Emperor. Oh wait, look over there. There seemed to be some kind of commotion. Let’s take a closer look at Mizu Megami Ichidou over there. It was actually built by a renowned builder known as DarkSpawn.
What is going on? Those 2 warriors are fighting just like some martial kung fu movie artists.. I wonder what they are fighting for. TheBrickster pointed at the other corner of the bridge which reveals more Ninja on the other side of the bridge. I am glad that we are safe up here, looking at them from above. Should we go down and help them? We could borrow some katana from them and aid either side, if we ever know whom to help in the first place.
