Bloomin’ Himeji

Himeji is an easy day trip from Osaka – and definitely worth the trip. The drawcard everyone knows is Himeji Castle, one of the largest in Japan. It’s a beautiful complex, and even when over-run with tourists you can see how awe inspiring it is. We were there on a day when the weather was patchy, but the blossom was full and the castle and surrounding buildings were looking beautiful.
