Only the basement was remained

Shot at East Park of Tokyo Imperial Palace.

A man was walking in front of the tall stone wall. It was the basement of Tenshukaku, the central tower of the Edo Castle.

In 1657, the tower was burned in a fire and it have never rebuilt. Surprisingly, the Samurai at that time thought the tower was useless because it was already a peaceful time. They decide to put the utmost importance on the economical reasons than their vainglory. I thought they were smarter-than-expected.
