Visiting the Himeji castle

Himeji castle as seen from the outside of the walls.

I had to spend some time at Himeji during one of my work days which gave me a chance to visit the Himeji castle. I was also lucky enough to have really good weather during that day! The Himeji castle in Hyoogo prefecture is one of the world heritage buildings which also luckily survived the bombings of the World War II. The castle was recently renovated over several years and was fully re-opened to the public in March 2015.

Himeji-jo is the finest surviving example of early 17th-century Japanese castle architecture, comprising 83 buildings with highly developed systems of defence and ingenious protection devices dating from the beginning of the Shogun period. It is a masterpiece of construction in wood, combining function with aesthetic appeal, both in its elegant appearance unified by the white plastered earthen walls and in the subtlety of the relationships between the building masses and the multiple roof layers.

【夢応援プロジェクト】My Return to Japan-Land, Part I

My Return to Japan-Land, Part I

Hello World! My name is Nick, I’m a 25 year old American and this is actually my first blog ever… so that’s always fun and exciting lol.

Actually, the point of my blog is to document my journey back to Japan in hopes of fulfilling a few of my dreams; namely, making a living in Japan while starting my own business. Tough, I know. I did not choose the easy road, that’s for sure.

Day trip to Minoo waterfall

A small riverside restaurant on the way to the Minoo waterfall

We visited Minoo fall last weekend when the weather was sunny and hot as usual. Minoo waterfall resides in the really northern part of the Osaka prefecture but it’s still easy to reach with trains!
