 Japan’s stunning castles were constructed as military strongholds as well as symbols of power and opulence. Most have been destroyed by natural disasters, change of government or warfare, but a handful of original, non-reconstructions remain. The following are some of the most well-preserved and impressive castles left in Japan today.

 

 

Hyogo

Himeji Castle

 

85218fb7-71a1-4724-b49a-b1ce6ad52a12

Easily Japan’s most famous castle, Himeji’s colossal fortress was built by 24.3 million workers and reached its present form in the 17th century. The castle underwent restoration work from 2011 to 2015, resulting in a brilliant-white appearance that has become the subject of local controversy—tourists often prefer the gaudier, updated version, while long-time Kansai residents miss the former castle’s more subdued look. Either way, it is a must-see for any visitor to Japan.
