Himeji Castle, Kokoen Gardens and Last Samurai Temple Tour

Discover the Enchanting Wonders of Himeji

Immerse Yourself in History and Beauty with Our Signature Tour of Himeji.

Himeji Castle stands majestically above Himeji city. A truly iconic symbol of Japan as recognizable as Mt Fuji. As the country’s largest, and most beautiful castle in original condition, it is no wonder it was Japan’s first site to be recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and 30 years later remains the only castle with that status. An architectural wonder incorporating a myriad of defensive mechanisms behind its majestic façade, it is a must-see for any visitor to Japan. At DEEBO, we take pride in curating an extraordinary experience that transports you back in time. We take you on a journey of exploration, beyond its pristine white walls and intricate gabled roofs to uncover the secrets of its construction, the stories of the people who built it, and tales, spooky, inspiring, and tragic of the people who lived, loved, and died there. The Castle is but one of Himeji’s Important Cultural Landmarks featured on your tour. The journey continues as you ascend to the summit of Mount Shosha, where breathtaking panoramic vistas await. Let the gentle whispers of the breeze carry you through a world of emerald-green forests to the sacred Engyoji Temple, nestled deep in the mountain’s embrace. This spiritual sanctuary offers a retreat from the world, inviting quiet reflection and a deeper connection to nature, that will leave an indelible mark on your soul. Here, we will soak in this serene ambiance while experiencing the rich tapestry of ancient Buddhist traditions such as zen meditation and sutra copying. Movie buffs will recognize the Mitsunodo area made famous by the epic Hollywood movie Last Samurai with Tom Cruise and Ken Watanabe.
