Great find! Any similar document for the SDF maybe? And any other building is OK to be taken from the street, if I understand correctly? For instance bridges, dams, non-Army government buildings, etc. Thanks a lot!

@cpast: Let's focus the question on buildings. Anyway, all laws preventing buildings pictures are accepted as answers, regardless of whether they are actually privacy laws or not. Cheers!

@JJCS: I would like to make it clear that my question is not about privacy, it is about law. Taking pictures of the entrance of a love hotel is not great from a privacy point of view (nobody want to be seen entering it), but it is not forbidden by law.

@choster: Exactly, and I want information on what is OK and what is not. Most countries have laws/decrees for this, the trick is to find the relevant text (probably in Japanese). Your link talks about inside the subway (ruled by the transportation authority), whereas I am asking about street photography (rules by public law I guess?). Cheers!

comment Where exactly is Yamada Castle in Okinawa?
How about the coordinates? Wikipedia gives 26°25′54″N 127°46′57″E as coordinates, but Google Maps Satellite shows at that point a house that does not match the description of the blog post. Nearby there are 3 suspect artifacts but difficult to say which one was Yamada Castle.

Most of the OpenStreetMap data in this area was actually created by me. It is not complete, I have not drawn gates because I don't know whether there are any.

Indeed it seems that my "3 kilometers" was exaggerated. Fixed, thanks! Still, I am interested in knowing whether the South route is doable or not.
