What people are saying:

The national treasure of Himeji Castle, known as the white egret in the sky, when I came here ten years ago because of the maintenance work, I did not see the shape of the great egret, leaving a lot of regret. This time I came here and finally repaired it. The view. The white egret is called the sky. On the one hand, the color of the city is white and it is very eye-catching. On the other hand, it is because the castle is very tall and magnificent, and you can see it from far away. In fact, you can see the castle from the parking lot outside. The entire display area of Himeji Castle is still very large. First, you need to enter a large section of garden-like road from the main entrance before you can go to the ticket office. We remind you that you can buy tickets here with Alipay or UnionPay cards. After checking the ticket, you can see different city defense facilities, windows of iron cannons and bows and arrows, and city defense facilities on different gates. Because the entire Himeji Castle was completely preserved under the demolition of Meiji and the bombing of World War II, so The preservation is very late, and the city needs to go through various curves to finally reach the castle tower. The castle tower in Himeji Castle is newly renovated, so it feels good, and the interior feels very spacious, especially the lower floors. There are not many exhibits in the entire castle tower. In addition to the city defense facilities, the most interesting thing is the two big pillars from the east and the west. Together these two tall woods support the entire building and extend to the top floor of the castle tower. If you have a guide, You can listen to these stories. After climbing to the top, there is also a small view of the mountains. Of course, the main blower is also very comfortable. There are not many high-rise buildings in Himeji City, and the visibility is still far away. After leaving the Tianshou, you can go to a square to take a panoramic view and then return. It is highly recommended that you have time to visit Himeji Castle in Himeji City. Japan has four national treasures. Inuyama is a small place where you don’t even have to climb a ladder. The scales of Matsue and Matsumoto are also much smaller. They are still very distinctive. , It is recommended to reserve enough time.
