14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Miyashiro in the rain.

This is the shrine that is left of Miyashiro Castle. It was an important boundary for a warlord named Date Masamune. I came here because I wanted to go to all the castles that were part of Date Masamune's life, a warlord who was interested in foreigners. So, I came to the far countryside to see what was left.
