Himeji Castle as a World Heritage

Himeji Castle as a World Heritage

In 1992 Japan signed the Agreement of World Heritage list, and Himeji Castle, and Horyuji Temple and its attached buildings were recommended for the World Heritage in Japan.
Himeji Castle is a well preserved building and above all its a good representative of all the castles in Japan. The committee highly valued the traditional wooden architecture in Japan. Castle stone walls and the white plastered walls have been well maintained in original forms.
