Overview

We visit Himeji Castle and a roofed shopping arcade in Himeji. In the afternoon we move to Koro town by JR train to visit " Toy Museum." It takes about twenty minutes from Himeji to Koro by train.

What to Expect

Samurai warriors built black castles in the time of wars because black was difficult to see for enemies. And from Edo period, in the time of peace, they built white castles to show dignity of the lord of a castle. Himeji Castle is an excellent example of these white castles. The word " Hime" means " a princess " in Japanese. Some people complain " It looks like a princess wearing a heavy make-up." But she is really a tough lady. There are many clever tricks to trap enemies in this castle. Indeed she is going too far. If you were an enemy, how would you like to attack this fortress ? Please think the way when you visit this castle. Also there are some scary stories about this castle. In " Toy Museum," you'll be impressed by many elaborated works by craftsmen in Edo period and Meiji period. What kind of toys did children use when they were playing house in Edo period? The exhibits are works of art rather than toys.

Hello, my name is Azusa Arita. I'm a licensed tour guide in English. I think there is no big difference between what Japan is today and what you see about Japan in manga, except " Naruto." ( Sorry but Ninjya is no longer exist.) Japan is a two -faced society, a society of modern technology and that of tradition. That's why it seems mysterious and difficult to understand. Hiroshima is a good place to experience the both aspects of Japan. Do you know the darkness in which you 'll be a new person, or the special way you can gain the same amount of wisdom written in Buddhist scriptures at one time?
Let's go and find the answers to these mysteries in Hiroshima. I'll make sure you have a great time in this tour. read more
