    Google Bookmarks
    For this date we were given special permission to do some cosplay and take photos in Kokura Castle! And it wasn't just castle, we also got the chance to visit (and take some snaps at) the garden inside the grounds, as well as the traditional tea room! Dressed as one of my favorite cosplay characters, I will be introducing you to all of the charm and excitement of Kokura Castle, so please read-on! There's loads of cosplay snaps for you to enjoy that are unique to the Fukuoka area. And you won't be seeing them anywhere else, so make sure to check them out!
