Favorite thing: <BR>Make your way to <font color='006699', face='papyrus'><b>HIMEJI-JO CASTLE</b></font>. Explore this magnificent Japanese castle, stroll in its garden & linger in history...
<BR>In 1992 Japan signed the Agreement of <font color='red'>World Heritage</font> list; HIMEJI CASTLE & HORYUJI TEMPLE were recommended for the World Heritage in Japan.
<BR>Main Tower with the smaller towers & corridors connecting these towers have been registered as national treasures. The Cosmetic Tower, 27 <i>yagura</i>, 15 gates & 1000 m long earthen walls have all been registered as important cultural treasures.

Fondest memory: <BR>That's me! Just being myself - love to take photos, whatever it is, wherever it is.To me, that's one way of freezing the good times...
