Criteria: (i) (iv) | Date of Inscription: 1993 | Location: Hyogo Prefecture | Justification for Inscription



- A Western image of Japanese cities has always been one where it is very crowded and streets are narrow, but in the city of Himeji, I have a chance to see city and city management in its best form. There I think Himeji-jo is one of the best castles in Japan. As I was touring the castle, lots of history were on display. (USA)

- Best at cherry blossom season, worth the trip in any season or weather. (USA)

- The most beautiful castle of Japan. Close to the station. (Chile)
