Himeji Castle 【World Heritage】

With a history of 400 years since its construction and being deemed a national treasure, Himeji Castle, also known as Shirasagi-jo or White-Heron Castle, was registered as a world heritage, together with Horyu Temple, as the first such registration involving Japanese assets.
The amazing architectural beauty-coalition type castle, which consists of the grand castle tower and 3 small keep towers, and the brilliantly white walls, makes it look as if a white heron (Shirasagi) was flying up in the sky.
