Himeji is surprisingly close to Kyoto and Osaka.
With the special rapid service, you’ll be there in no time at all!

By Train

using JRsuper-rapid(JR新快速)

■from KYOTO  85 min
■from OSAKA  60min
■from KOBE  35min

We’re located in a shopping street on the way from the station to the castle. The moat of the castle is only a 5-minute walk from here.

You can also go out at night to enjoy the fantastic Himeji Castle. The scenery is as if you have slipped back in time!

*Attention! Be sure to google “Himeji 588 Guesthouse” when searching. If you look up the address (Honmachi 68), you’ll find a location that is completely different. The reason is that Honmachi 68 represents the second-most extensive area in Japan, which covers the entire area around Himeji Castle.
So again, be sure to search for “Himeji 588 Guesthouse”. *The largest address in Japan is the Imperial Palace.
