The Himeji Castle

The Hemeji Castle

The Hemeji Castle also known as "The White Heron" is a Japanese castle that is atop a hill. It is called the "White Heron" because of its white features on the outside and the way it looks makes it seem as if it were a bird ready to fly. The Hemeji Castle dates back in the 1300s. Akamatsu Sadanori built this structure. Back then, this castle was called something else. And everytime it was remodeled it would be called something up to date. But the last remodel of the castle earned its name and kept it. The Hemeji Castle is located on the Harmina Plain. It is the best example of a Medieval castle in Japan. It is made of natures best and has it surrounding the place.
