Himeji Castle


Fascinated by Japanese architecture after returning from Japan, I painted this castle on a beautiful slab of Jadeite.

I visited Himeji Castle on a hilltop  complex located in Himeji, in Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan. The castle is regarded as the finest surviving example of prototypical Japanese castle architecture, comprising a network of 83 buildings with advanced defensive systems from the feudal period.

The castle is frequently known as Hakuro-jō (“White Egret Castle”) or Shirasagi-jō (“White Heron Castle”) because of its brilliant white exterior and supposed resemblance to a bird taking flight.  Built in stages from 1333 to 1609, I took the amazing tour of the inside and grounds, of the largest surviving castle in Japan.
