Himeji Castle is a hilltop Japanese castle complex located in Himeji,
in Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan. The area within the middle moat of the castle
complex is a designated Special Historic Site and five structures of the
castle are also designated National Treasures.
The castle is regarded as the finest surviving example of prototypical
Japanese castle architecture, comprising a network of 83 buildings with
advanced defensive systems from the feudal period. The castle is frequently
known as Hakuro-jō ("White Egret Castle") or Shirasagi-jō ("White
Heron Castle") because of its brilliant white exterior and supposed
resemblance to a bird taking flight..
Himeji Castle is the largest and most visited castle in Japan, and it
was registered in 1993 as one of the first UNESCO World Heritage Sites
in the country.
