It`s hot & humid here in the summertime. It can get unbearable at times. If you can`t take it & need a break, go into one of the department stores near the station & cool off!

Himeji is famous for Himeji Castle "White Heron Castle". It's the most beautiful castle I have seen in Japan.
There is more to see in Himeji than just the castle though. Take a look at some of my tips for more info. Enjoy your trip & if you have any questions about this city please do not hesitate to email me.

This picture was taken during the Himeji Castle Cherry Blossom Festival on April 6, 2003. See how the blossoms are mixed with maple leaves??

    You were the featured traveler just now, and so I wanted to see what you had written about a good spot, and chose this at random. Wonderful looking place!

    from your cherry blossom photos, there's no doubt that to visit during this time would be great. however, photos of this part of japan taken during autumn really look great too. now i'm not sure anymore when i should go =)

    My Japan trip is in a few weeks time so you have made Himeji a must for me. I really love historical places and it seems a unique experience of a very different country from mine.

    A friend of mine and her 2 young boys are over in Nippon right now, for a 2-month visit to see the grandparents. Your photos give me a small glimpse of what they're seeing everyday. Thank you!

    Hi Sonia! Guess what? I am in Osaka and heading for Himeji tomorrow! Cherry Blossoms are in full bloom! I'm reading your tips with interest and will try to send you my impressions when I get back to Manila on Saturday. Cheers!

    Now I'm in love with Himeji Castle.... I have visited there 4 times since last September :-) Your photo (Himeji in spring) is very beautiful. I'd like to go there in spring.
