The castle around which the city of Himeji has developed represents one of the best preserved in the country, and has been designated as a national treasure and a World Heritage Site.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Himeji: Takeda Castle Ruins (in Asago), Okayama (Okayama Korakuen Garden & Okayama Castle) and Kurashiki (Ohara Museum of Art & Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Himeji Castle, take in the spiritual surroundings of Nagoyama Reien Busharito, indulge in Japan's hot spring tradition at some of the top local onsens, and explore the striking landscape at Tottori Sand Dunes.
