Everybody's working for the weekend

After some hectic weeks at work, I was in need of a time out to relax. So last weekend I checked the options, decided to go to Himeji, booked a hotel and... well that's it.

Located in the small town of Himeji (a day trip from Osaka), Himeji Castle is known as the nicest, best-preserved, most impressive castle in Japan. It was one of the first UNESCO World Heritage sites designated in Japan. We were not disappointed -- it's beautiful and amazing!

Again, our timing was pretty amazing. Himeji Castle has been going through a large five year renovation starting in April 2010. ...

... the terminal stop). From the ropeway station at the top of the mountain, you can wander the beautiful pathway-along which Kannon statues are scattered-until you reach the main temple, Maniden. By the time you arrive at the temple, you will feel the worries of the world have lifted as your body and spirit become attuned to your surroundings.

As you leave Maniden and continue on, you will come to a clearing surrounded by three temples: ...
