Ohanami Taiko (Japanese Drum) at Himeji Catsle, Hyogo
18th March, 2017 | at Himeji Catsle, Hyogo Pref.
If you only see one castle in Kansai, put this at the top of your list! Reportedly the most visited castle in Japan, Himeji Castle (Himeji-jo), nicknamed the “White Heron” has been standing proudly on top of a hill called Himeyama for 400 years. Constructed from wood, not stone, it is named the White Heron due to its white plastered earthen walls that help to make it fireproof. official website ›› http://www.himeji-kanko.jp/
