I made a trip to Himeji earlier this week. The city is famous for the castle which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The central castle tower building (Honmaru) was being repaired and is enclosed in a big box - seen from the moat on the south side of the castle ground.
A close up of the enclosure seen from the east side - at least its picture is drawn on it.
A picture of the inside of the enclosure.
The castle wall - magnificent.
A trail along the moat on the north side.
There were still some cherry trees still with flowers.
Replica of Shachihoko that are on the roof of the castle - 190 cm in height and 250 kg each.
