Himeji Castle, one of the architecturally beautiful castles in Japan, is currently undergoing renovation work (until 2014).
However, visitors can watch the restoration process of the three story castle from observation platforms, and they can still enter other areas of the castle complex and visit the castle defenses.
In this photo story however, I've captured the castle before the restoration project started.

Travelling to various places and locations in Japan for over 20 years now, I want to share my experiences and also hear about destinations that I still have not been to in the land of the rising sun. Am a photography enthusiast and love to do slow shutter blue hour photography in Tokyo.
