Japan’s most spectacular castle may well look its best when surrounded by spring’s generous bounty of blossom. But even on an overcast January morning — and with the extra burden of me behind the lens — the famous old building still retains its unique charm and beauty.
Proving it to be a very generous host indeed. Even if we were forced to walk around its interior in ill-fitting slippers, suffering temperatures barely above freezing.
Himeji!! Yes, it’s so cool, isn’t it? And those slippers really are ridiculous…
Very nice photo and makes me wanna visit!
Hey That’s the Secret Ninja Camp from “You only live Twice”!!
i still prefer the matsumoto jo. i think it retains more of that ancient feeling. himeji is nice, but it didn’t really feel ancient when inside..
Those Japanese “castle”s are great. But…I prefer Red ones 😉
Why can’t Japan provide slippers for people who don’t have club-feet. It bugs me everytime I have to wear those stooopid things

It looks fantastic, you can never see it being ‘dated’ always imposing and making you want to go inside..
Yeah? I think I went through it wearing only socks, also at close to freezing temp last Feb. You know what sucks even more though? I saw a lady tour guide wearing blazer jacket and short skirt uniform from the 80’s. The stairs are so deep and yet she has to wear that stupid uniform, which results in quite a few horny old men peeking under her everytime she goes up the stairs! God, now that I think of it, I should’ve taken a picture of THAT!!! Way more interesting than the castle itself.
