Japan Hyogo Himeji, Castle View

Himeji Castle (姫路城, Himeji-jō) is a hilltop Japanese castle complex located in Himeji in Hyōgo Prefecture. The castle is regarded as the finest surviving example of prototypical Japanese castle architecture, comprising a network of 83 buildings with advanced defensive systems from the feudal period. The castle is frequently known as Hakurojō (“White Egret Castle”) or Shirasagijō (“White Heron Castle”) because of its brilliant white exterior and supposed resemblance to a bird taking flight.
