Aizu-wakamatsu Castle - 2016 pieces

Although this castle boasts a history stretching back more than 600 years, it was damaged in the Battle of Aizu — hostilities during the switch from the rule of the Shoguns to the Meiji restoration — and the main tower was destroyed by 1874. It was rebuilt (in reinforced concrete) in 1965, and finally in 2011 the black roof tiles were returned to the authentic red tiles from the time of its destruction. The castle grounds contain around a thousand cherry trees, one of which frames the view here.

The castle is in the modern city of Aizu-wakamatsu, after which it is usually named in English, but it is also known as Tsurugajô, or "Crane Castle".

Kintai bridge

Position map

Kintai bridge - 2016 pieces

This bridge is a landmark of western Japan, with both red maples and cherry trees planted alongside, for gorgeous pictures in all seasons. We are told that the name Kintaikyô - or "Brocade sash bridge" - is derived from a resemblance to a kimono sash. This is pretty unconvincing, until you realise that the river under the bridge is Nishikigawa: this Nishiki is the Japanese reading for "brocade", written with the same Chinese character as the Kin in Kintai.

The bridge consists of five wooden arches: at the time it was originally built (1673), wheeled transport was almost unknown in Japan, so presumably it was not worthwhile going to the extra effort of providing a level roadway. It seems unlikely that this design would have been used in Europe at that time.

Matsumoto-san's excellent photographs of the bridge (in Japanese)

Longmen Gorge

Longmen Gorge (Kazumi) - 1000 pieces

A rather jolly illustration of the origin of dragons. We see three carp, one making the giant leap up a waterfall, where success means becoming a real fiery dragon just as we see at the top. The origin of this story is supposed to be a gorge on the Yellow Rive in China, but here the artist has given us somewhat fanciful topography, as the river wends its way down the ridge of a mountain.

There is plenty of variation in this puzzle: the bright azaleas and pine trees keep the background interesting, and particularly the dragon is a lively, finely drawn creature.

Izumi Kazumi is an animal artist who graduated from Osaka University fine arts department in 1984. Izumi is her family name.

Peach blossom angel (Haruyo) - 1000 pieces

Haruyo depicts this heavenly swirling figure with panache. With a name no doubt derived from the ancient Chinese legend of the the Peach Blossom Spring, this flying creature is more properly a tennyo, a kind of heavenly messenger whose origins are lost in the mists of India.

Wikipedia articles on The Peach Blossom Spring and tennyo

The artist Morita Haruyo studied both Japanese art and kimono design, and she combines these with elements of her own Western-influenced technique. (She travelled to London in 1977, exactly the year I [Brian Chandler] first came to Tokyo.)

Morita is her family name: she follows the tradition of signing - and sealing - paintings with her given name only.

Tower Bridge
© Seibi-sha

Tower Bridge (Yamashita) - 1000 pieces

The artist made a tour of Europe in 1961, resulting in a series of depictions of landmarks such as Tower Bridge in London.

Born in 1922 in Tokyo, Yamashita had a troubled childhood: - after a bullying incident at school involving a knife, he was classified as mentally handicapped, and placed in an institution. His genius for creating harie (pasted paper pictures) was soon realised, though, and eventually he featured in many exhibitions across Japan. He remained an eccentric: from 1940 to 1954 he roamed the country wearing only an undershirt (it is said), earning himself the moniker of "The naked artist wanderer". Although he travelled widely seeking material, including an extended tour of Europe in 1961, it seems he did not work in the field, but would return to his studio and create images entirely from memory. He died in 1971 at the early age of 49.

His story has been dramatised a number of times, in the 1956 film known as "The naked general" and later television series.

Red Fuji - 450 pieces

A spectacular aerial view of the rare but genuine meteorological phenomenon whereby at dawn or sunset the whole side of the mountain appears to glow red.

As Mount Olympus was the home of the Greek gods, so Mt. Fuji (3776 metres above sea level) has its place as the symbol of Japan. Although most popular tourist pictures show the view from the south, with the bullet train passing below the mountain, the best views are from the north and east sides.

Another, different view of Fuji from Tokyo! This unusual bridge is the latest Tokyo landmark, opened in 2012. It is a truss cantilever bridge, and has earned the nickname "Dinosaur Bridge" — can you see why? Anyway, lit up, it provides a striking foreground to the distant mountain.

Kintai bridge

Position map

Kintai bridge - 300 pieces

This bridge is a landmark of western Japan, with both red maples and cherry trees planted alongside, for gorgeous pictures in all seasons. We are told that the name Kintaikyô - or "Brocade sash bridge" - is derived from a resemblance to a kimono sash. This is pretty unconvincing, until you realise that the river under the bridge is Nishikigawa: this Nishiki is the Japanese reading for "brocade", written with the same Chinese character as the Kin in Kintai.

The bridge consists of five wooden arches: at the time it was originally built (1673), wheeled transport was almost unknown in Japan, so presumably it was not worthwhile going to the extra effort of providing a level roadway. It seems unlikely that this design would have been used in Europe at that time.
