... areas were accessible and I was able to see the castle in its very whitest appearance. Slight downside: this makes the castle an even bigger tourist attraction than it already is, so I wasn't the only one when I arrived there 20 minutes before opening time.

Of course I have seen the castle before on tv and internet, but seeing it 'live' with your own eyes is something completely different. It really is beautiful, from every angle and ...

Thankfully, climbing down the numerous levels in our bare feet did not prove hazardous (although we almost hit our heads on several of the low beams).

... as the *Mt. Hiei of the West.

Movie buffs out there may know that the temple was used as the location for the Hollywood movie, “The Last Samurai”. It is said that the crew visited Mt. Shosha by chance and were so impressed with the site that it featured as the backdrop for the movie.

To get to Engyogi, simply take a 30-minute bus ride on the Shinki Bus (No. 8), from either Himeji station or Himeji Castle, and jump off at Mount Shosha ...
