In our house, Himeji Castle has the joking title of “Best One Way System in Japan”. It’s a nod to the monument’s hyper-organised route through its cramped keep that ensures the most number of people see the maximum amount of castle.

Joking aside, the UNESCO Word Heritage site is a beautiful place to visit that goes far beyond the iconic “White Heron”. It has beautiful gardens, a museum housed in its outer walls and stunning views across Himeji City.
