To say that it is Japan's most spectacular castle seemed like a sweeping declaration. But with almost every article describing it as such, I thought the Himeji Castle was worth a visit during our trip.
And it was. Because more than the castle, it was the whole city that charmed us and made us wish we could stay longer. But since we had limited time, we just made do of that one day we had to explore the second largest city in the Hyogo Prefecture.
