White Heron Castle of Himeji.

White Heron Castle of Himeji.

Last Thursday, I visited Himeji Castle (姫路城) also called the White Heron Castle (白鷺城), in Himeji City (姫路市). Founded in 1333, when a fort was constructed on Himeyama hill by Akamatsu Norimura, the ruler of the ancient Harima Province. Akamatsu Norimura (赤松 則村, 1277 - February 18, 1350) was a Japanese samurai of the Akamatsu clan in the Muromachi period. He was governor (shugo) of Harima Province in Hyogo Prefecture.
