  Himeji Castle
by kiwigal_1

Himeji is a city located in the Kansai area of Japan not far from Osaka. It's claim to fame is this beautiful castle. The castle is a national treasure and one of the best castles you could possibly see in Japan. This picture is one of my personal favourites.

Don't forget to look at my Himeji page for information!

Directions: Take the main Shinkansen line that runs from Tokyo down to Hakata (Fukuoka). The Hikari Railstar Shinkansen that leaves from Shin-Osaka makes a stop here. It is about 3 hours from Tokyo.
