It was strange I had come to Hinase believing that I was going to stay for one week max. I am now leaving after almost a month here!

The same can be said for the gardens which has big wide open spaces and all the features of a traditional Japanese garden. After visiting Okayama, I headed on to Hiroshima on the slowest bullet train ever( nearly 2 hours for a 40 minute journey because of 20 minute stops at every station on the way!)

... outer walls. Himeji is a city built around the castle and this is clear upon leaving the station, which is a straight main street away from the castle.
