Beautiful castle

Do you know Kokura castle? It's a very beautiful castle located in Kitakyushu, constructed in 1602 by the Hosokawa family. I read a lot of the Hosokawa family's history, so I was proud to guide my Japanese friends with their children from Tokyo. And I showed them a lot of the "kireina oshiri". But for some reason their children always laughed when I said castle in Japanese. What was wrong with it? Oh no, I confused oshiri (backside) and oshiro (castle). How embarrassing^o^. That's why everybody laughed...
