Otemae Street, Himeji

3.1
Set against the background of Himeji Castle, a World Heritage Site, Otemae Street makes a very attractive stroll stretching some 1.2 km (0.75 mi) from Himeji station to the castle. Offering a superb view of the castle, which sits high atop a hill at the far end of the street, this nicely paved, tree-lined boulevard provides great vibes and good photo opportunities. Sit on a bench and feel the energy of local life, or admire numerous bronze statues by famous Japanese sculptors. Rows of camphor and ginkgo trees provide shade as you wander past restaurants and browse through simple flea market stalls.

  • The road between the station and the Himeji city. During the visit it was winter, just a couple of apricot trees turned yellow, on the road there are cobblestone filled with yellow leaves, through the autumn of the winter sun, through the gap in the blink of a flash. It's really a nice street.
