    Pachinco Parlors (I think I spelled it right)

    I don't know how to play Pachinco. I'm just a fan of Asahi Beer, so I took a picture of the building. If you like to gamble, it's a way to win or lose some money. I've never played before though, and don't really have any plans to try it.

    Yatsushiro Shrine

    Behind the Castle is another Shrine. I don't know if they're both part of the Shinto religion, but I believe so. Anyway, it's another sight to check out. In the shrines people go to pray for good luck. There is a trough with a ladel at the entrance where they will wash out their hands and mouth before entering the shrine to pray. There is a bell in the shrine as well. It is rang by anyone wishing to pray. It is suppose to be to let the Gods know that someone wishes to speak to them.

    Yatsushiro Castle

    I don't know much about the castle, but it is interesting to see if you've never been to a Japanese Castle before. There is a shrine inside and a few monuments and a Shrine. Definitely something to check out during the day if you're ever in Yatsushiro, and the best part about it is the entry is free.
