Castle Ruin

One sunny April morning
Visited the ruin of a castle Somei Yoshino
The most loved flower
In Japan
The stone walls and the moat
Still remain
And flowered
Hundreds of cherry trees
In full bloom
The castle was abandoned in 1871
Nowadays, the land is used for prefectural government's buildings
