About 20 minutes walk from Himeji Station JR.
Himeji Castle has become Japanese National Treasure and UNESCO World Heritage Site. "White Egret Castle" also called. Over five years from October 2009, with a large castle tower restoration work.
Around the Himeji City Museum of Art, Hyogo Prefectural Museum of History, Himeji City Zoo, there is.
Himeji Castle Model, Kitamae ship Model have been exhibited and more.
Visited in November 2011. Restoration work was in full swing.
Scaffold was built for the transportation of heavy equipment and materials. Not to damage the historic site, and there are various devices.
From this point on, you must have a separate entrance fee.
Photographs that I see in the back, Nishinomaru and Kesho Turret. Kesho Turret is Princess Sen building edge.
Many sights in Himeji Castle.
"The Dish Mansion at Banshu" well, famous.
The Dish Mansion at Banshu is a Japanese ghost story.
The gate was built just outside of the regular passage. I kind of loophole was created with hard eyes. Are unique Himeji Castle.
