Shiro (城) are Japanese castles or fortresses constructed mainly of wood and stone. Japanese castles were built to defend strategic points such as river crossings and ports and incorporated the landscape into their defences. Because they were built mostly of wood, many were destroyed by fire and war. The illustration depicts Osaka Castle, originally built in 1583 and demolished in 1868. It was reconstructed in 1928 and now fully restored.
