"Hemeji - Japan's Most Beautiful Castle" Top 5 Page for this destination Hyogo Prefecture Tip by bkoon

Hyogo Prefecture, Kyoto: 3 reviews and 3 photos

  Himeji Castle - World Heritage Site
by bkoon

Many say that one will not need to visit any other castle after seeing the most beautiful castle of Japan, the Himeji Castle.

Although a bit far from Kyoto than other nearby places, this castle is worth a visit. It is white in colour and a World Heritage Site too. The main highlight of Himeji is this castle.

NOTE : Please refer to my Himeji Page for more tips or visit Sonia's (heywinks) page for comprehensive information too.
