Not only with a beautiful overwall view, Himeji Castle will fascinate you with a role of fortress.The labyrinth-like approach to main keep will slow down enemy invasion.Through 1,000 loophole guns are fired at attackers.Angled chutes are also set at numerous points in the castle walls to throw stones or pour boiling oil on attackers.

Let's feel both old and new atmosphere of port town,Kobe

Hyogo
8 hours

I have selected several tourism spots by which you can feel old and new Kobe.Kobe has been developed as a main port of western Japan since Meiji period as same as Yokohama in eastern Japan.You can see various old buildings used in past for foreign representatives or merchants. And in the meantime Kobe developed rapidly as a prefectural capital of Hyogo and as industrial city.

I have selected several tourism points by which you can feel real Osaka.The culture and people's minds in Osaka are totally different from that from Tokyo or other places.It is difficult to explain in word what is different. But you please feel atmoshere by yourself and take some Osaka foods. I'm sure you will find something.

Nara
8 hours

To compare with kyoto, scale of Nara is much smaller and period of capital was almost one tenth.But Nara is older than Kyoto.So you can feel ancient culture of Japan in very small limited space very efficietly.
