Himeji Castle is supposed to be the largest castel in Japan and definitly stands out. Great day trip from Kyoto.
Downtown Himeji - looking from the bus/train station up the avenue to the castle.
Bento boxes: meals-to-go sold in the station - usually sushi pieces.
This secluded corner of the castle was the cermonial spot for the hara-kiri (seppuku) by disgraced samurai.
