After having been in Himeji, Japan for over two weeks, I finally got a chance to visit, explore, and be amazed by the wonder that is Himeji castle. Hundreds of years of culture in one building. And it was nothing like visiting a European castle with the rooms full of furniture, art, and other artifacts. Himeji castle was empty.
Though, with a castle so intricately built, who needs furniture? One could see the history in the worn floor boards. The culture is defined in the style of the rooms, the windows, the staircases. Windows looked out over every part of the surrounding city with picturesque views, but why don’t I let the pictures show you?
