  • When you enter from the main gate, himeji castle appears, but the climb continues slowly from it, and the castle tower is built in a higher place. The front of the castle tower was Bizen Maru. The castle tower from here was a place that showed a different expression from the elegance of Himeji Castle, which was so powerful because it was close and crooked for defense.

  •  The place just south of himeji castle tower is Bizen Maru. This is originally a section of honmaru, where the castle owner Terumasa Ikeda lived, but the building that was built here was burned down in the Meiji era. It was a spot where you can look up at the big castle tower.

  • Part of the visit in Himeji castle. You can see how the construction of the protector gods had evolved through time.
  • This is part of the incredible Himeji Castle complex. Himeji Castle is probably one of the most picturesque castles in Japan. It is very easy to get to the castle from the train station. You can either take a local bus or walk for about 15-20 minutes. The castle can get a bit crowded on weekends, so if you can visit during the week, it might be better and less hectic. It is an easy day-trip to Himeji castle from either Osaka or Kyoto and you can also stop in Kobe on the way to or from Himeji Castle. There are plenty of other interesting sites in the vicinity of Himeji Castlle and it is well worth spending the day visiting them as well.
