... early start had everyone but me asleep in short order. Was still a fun experience for all, and we got to Himeji around 9:30. The castle is very impressive (it's a UNESCO World Heritage sight) and even though the renovations were done on the exterior we still could tour the interior of the main tower. (Will reopen in March 2015, so will be all ready next summer - hint Alicia). Did get to go through some of the outer buildings which ...

... trhe castle but don`t quite know why I got so emotional when looking at the samurai armour, again just an odd feeling that I had but nothing bad.
It wasn`t until I was investigating the West bailey where Princess Sen lived that I really got than sense of deja vu and the tears just came from nowhere. It is impossible to describe the emotions I was feeling to anyone and as trange as it may sound I was not able to walk through this ...

... things. It was very cute. Ronin was trying to put his hands in boiling soup or naked flame. But there were plenty of other kids running amok.

Keiko, our waitress, had worked at Royal Pines for a year and we asked her to come visit. She was lovely.

All up, Yumenoi and Himeji were great. We saw the toy museum and the director honoured us by showing us how the toys worked. We stormed the castle with a battalion of other tourists. I'd love to stay at Yumenoi again.
