Report on trip to Himeji Castle
Students from the National University of Singapore, the University of Toronto, the University of California, Berkeley and Osaka University went on a trip to Himeji Castle on July 11,2014. The UNESCO World heritage castle was built more than 400 years ago and is famous as the most beautiful castle in Japan. Recently, the place is gathering more attention due to a historical television drama and its five-year long renovation. Because of continuing renovation, students could not go inside the main tower, but visited most of the area and learned about the Japanese traditional castle from a local guide.
