Himeji Castle is one of the most beautiful castles in Japan.
We explored the eastern bailey and the main castle and actually ended up exploring the castle for 2 hours without realising it. You can also see how thought out the defences were, several walls each wall with Archer holes, and at each gate also stood alot more Archer holes. The low lying roof upon the stairs designed to slow attackers down.
After lunch we explored Mt Shosha, which was a mountain full of temples.
