Artistic License - Geography: Dr. Shatterhand's castle resides near Japan's coast. In real life, they were never build so close to water due to storms and other natural problems.

Then, pray, tell me how come that the Edo Castle was built right on the shore? JFYI, everything to the east of the current Imperial Palace East Gardens (including Ginza and Tokyo Station) was built on the land reclaimed from the Tokyo bay. Historical shoreline went roughly along the train tracks of the Tokyo Station.

That example needs to go. Building in inplausible places is not Artistic License Geography.

The thing is it's not even that implausible a place. The original Edo Castle was built right up on the shore, and Imperial Palace (its remaining portion the castle was much, much larger) now stands inland only because all those 400 years the Japanese were draining the marshes around and dumped the soil into the Tokyo Bay to have more land to build things.
