    Himeji Castle is a renowned castle located in Himeji City, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan. It is known as one of the most beautiful castles in Japan, distinguished by its striking white exterior. For this reason, it is often referred to as the 'White Heron Castle.'

    Enjoy the atmosphere of the late Edo period with a leisurely stroll through the Karo Yashiki-ato Park
    Take a stroll through the 'Karo Yashiki-ato Park,' the former residence of Takasu Hayato, the leading Karo (chief retainer) during the Sakaifan Clan era (from the 1750s to the late Edo period). The park has been developed to resemble the Edo period castle grounds, featuring the layout of the residences along the main north-south streets of Himeji Castle Town. Four buildings, collectively known as the 'Karo Yashiki-kan,' including 'Ino Yashiki,' 'Rono Yashiki,' 'Hano Yashiki,' and 'Nino Yashiki,' also offer souvenirs and local products for sale.

    Explore the 'Arima Onsen,' Kansai's Hidden Gem

You can enjoy baths with different spring qualities, including the famous 'Kinsen' (gold spring) with its brown water and 'Ginsen' (silver spring) with its clear, colorless water. Arima Onsen is a popular hot spring destination frequented by numerous literary figures and celebrities.
