Tips from the community

Arguably better than Osaka castle, and far less known. Sitting atop a hill and overlooking lush black pines, sakura trees, and old bridges, this Japan landmark takes the cake for most idyllic and dramatic spot in the country. Himeji Castle was built in 1333 and looks almost new due to pristine maintenance and care. Views of (and from inside) the castle are unparalleled.
