Himeji Castle Attractions
Indeed, when seeing this old, but solid, well preserved and magnificent structure, it is difficult not to be amazed. Since its construction in 1333 it has not been damaged. However, now a major reconstruction work that is planned to endure till 2015 is being carried out and hence it is not possible to enter the main building, which is now covered by a large scaffold structure. Yet you can freely visit the observation desk and other parts of the castle.
