  • The sweat, but expensive for what is difficult. I had to place overlooking the city of Himeji with aerial tramway is a little walk. Temple still from far away. If possible, prepared or Buddha image into the side of the road, so it's hard to enjoy this Hill, you can walk.

  • Many people go to Himeji and is left alone with the Castle and the garden, which is a serious mistake because this is one of the best corners of Japan to take a walk and breathe peace. At the bus station you can buy a ticket with roundtrip bus and cable car trips. Recommend to walk up to the Castle and after the tour take the bus to the Mt. Shosha. The last samurai was filmed in Mount Shosha and is a magnificent landscape with several temples in the middle of the mountain that no one visiting Himeji should miss.
