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.
