Himeji castle, 50km East of Kobe, is the most beautiful and largest surviving medieval castle in Japan. Its look gave him the title of white egret. It was first built on a 3-floor plan in 1581 by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, then reconstructed in its present 5-floor form in 1601. It joined the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1993.
