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.

  • For the first time went to Himeji Castle. Today the weather was good, was the best? We arrive at the tower and wind line yet, but a little cold. Wouldn't it be best had little protection against the cold and wind do? And I want to come! Castle staff, in the light of the Sun ☀ ️ staff.

  • Holiday afternoon, almost one year Buri revisited. From Himeji Castle Himeji station main street Otemae-Dori is still very popular. Many foreign tourists, in particular, stands out for the Southeast Asian. I'd walk away without and within 15 minutes to arrive at Himeji Castle, on the way to the cafes and restaurants are, of course, souvenir temptation, such as stalls there await. It is so much fun to walk around while eating suites among the people who have come from all over the world, stop by to shop for them while you take out time, etc.. It is serving the tourist atmosphere or spillable spot.
