Elegant and lustrous white, Himeji is Japan’s most beautiful castle.
Built during the feudal period, Himeji Castle contains an advanced defensive system.
It consists of more than 80 structures spreading across multiple baileys. These baileys are then connected by a series of gates and winding paths.
Daitenshu or Main Keep is a magnificent multi-story wooden structure.
The floors are unfurnished and each level gets progressively smaller as you ascend. The keep also maintains some hidden features.
