Himeji City is famous for its Himeji Castle. Entry to the castle is wonderful - like a defensive wall and separated from samurai stories surrounded by a moat filled with water in swimming, obviously, golden fish. After passing the black bears find ourselves face to face with white castle on the hill above what is to be found. One reason for fame is just that white castle - is made only of wood and plaster.
Courtyard is surrounded by walls that can go and whom we visit. In these walls were finding the apartments where women hide their samurai and lords of the invaders, and still there were various defense systems - secret doors and windows where shoot arrows, throw water or oil is hot.
The castle walls still have an interesting story: in the land that was situated not too rock, so that ordinary people have donated their stones to build these walls. It noted in particular the story of a widow who donated her husband's tombstone.
