Free Afternoon Tour / 25 October


Opportunity to feel the Japanese history with your colleagues and friends!

Himeji-jo is the finest surviving example of early 17th-century Japanese castle architecture and it is the most spectacular example of a Japanese castle in existence.

The castle, along with Horyuji Temple, was designated in 1993 as Japan's first UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site because of its utilization of high level architectural techniques.
