Himeji Castle and Park
Himeji Castle is being refurbished and access to parts of it will be restricted until 2014. Fortunately Estelle and I were taken on an extensive tour of the castle on one of our earlier visits. The areas surrounding the Castle are laid out as beautiful park like walkways. There is a fairly new toilet block that I was told cost about one million dollars. Outside there was a lovely stainless steel sculpture which may or may not have been included in the costs.
