Himeji Castle

Event
This premier castle is Japan’s first UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, designated in December 1993. It’s also known as Hakuro (Egret) Castle. Around 1,000 cherry trees including Yoshino cherry and weeping cherry trees have been planted here. The blossoms at their peak against the castle tower and stark white walls is unforgettable. It is also one of Japan’s Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots. Every year during flowering season, events such as evening illumination and blossom viewing parties are held, and many visitors pour in to see cherry blossom around Himeji Castle throughout the day and into the night.
