  • I went to this museum as I did not plan to go into the Himeji Castle itself. This was because I was worried about the stairs that I would need to climb and we had a late start. This museum also has....  more »

  • A functional but not exceptional local museum. Has both free (ground floor) and paid (second floor) exhibits. The former seemed to be worth it if you've got 20-30 minutes to burn. Did not check out the latter but the Y1000 admission price seemed excessive given the apparently limited floor space (i.e. paid area love led to be smaller than the free area). English language labelling was a bit of a mixed bag... Brief 'section' labels were translated as were many artifact labels, but none of the longer information plaques were translated.
  • Kenzo Tange was the basic design and opened in 1983. Himeji Castle called "Shirasagi Castle" is reflected in the glass of the appearance. Please come and see. You can be satisfied with only the free zone on the first floor, but please pay extra and look elsewhere. On the second floor, there are materials and models such as "Mitsuyamakiyama Daisai". The volunteer guide gave me more details on the day I went, so I learned a lot. Special exhibition dates are special rates. Please check the details of the holidays every Monday. I got a twelve-day dress. It is a valuable experience. It is a wonderful kimono made in Kyoto of 2 million yen. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Because there is the clothes for children, please try wearing it if there is a chance. Because there is a restriction of time and the number of people, check it.
