Moreover, as I mentioned above, it takes more than an hour to spend in the castle. You will spend another one and a half hours wandering around the vicinity like the Nishioyashiki
Garden, Shirotopia Memorial Park, and the three museums namely, Literature, History and Art.
You need to allot ample time for Himeji Castle and its vicinity. It will be very tiring if you don't. Part of the castle is under renovation as of this writing. It means some of the areas are restricted to visitors....and this I learned is scheduled to finish in March 2014. Inspite of what's going on in the castle, still....it is a must-see.
