Himeji, the second biggest city in the prefecture of Hyogo, is within easy reach of popular tourist hotspots like Kobe, Osaka and Kyoto, meaning it’s a great place to slot into any travel itinerary of the Kansai region. It is mostly known for its magnificent castle, and rightly so, being one of the best examples of a surviving feudal castle in all of Japan, but there are two other not-so-famous, albeit just as magical, places within the city limits that are well worth checking out. They are Kokoen Garden and Engyoji Temple. Along with the castle, these make up Himeji’s Big Three Must-See Attractions. In this article we will break each one down and see what they have to offer.
