Osaka Castle: Then and Now

Two photos showing the then and now of the world famous Osaka Castle.  There is almost no change in terms of physical structures, but just more trees in the 'now' photo.  It seems Japanese have done a pretty good job in preserving their history and their past.  In contrast, Chinese are too money-minded, they squeeze almost every cent out from their rich past, and they do it almost always destructively.  It pains me to have to go overseas to see our own cultural treasures, our intangible culture of ancient Chinese.  The virtues of ancient Chinese, the Zheng-Qi, are little left in the nothing but money modern China.  Sad!
