Himeji castle which was built in 1609 has been miraculously survived for over 400 years. Many of the castles were destroyed by accidental fires or during the civil wars or the World War Ⅱ. The original buildings, defensive devices and layout to fight have been pretty well preserved. It is never difficult to imagine what a samurai castle was like. From the top of the main tower, you can enjoy amazing view of the city. The castle ground is also famous as a cherry blossom viewing spot in spring.
This Japanese garden was constructed in 1992 at the site of the ex-samurai’s residences. In the American “Journal of Japanese Garden”, this garden has always been in the top 25 among more than 800 domestic gardens. Enjoy scrolling beautiful gardens and having Matcha powdered green tea in the tea house.
