Japan -> Himeji
Hyogo Prefecture

The town of Himeji is best known for its beautiful 400 year old, Himeji Castle. Though the castle itself somehow escaped unscathed, the town was extensively bombed during World War II. Most visitors come to see Himeji Castle, but Koko-en is a pretty garden at the base of the castle that is also worth a stop. The garden sits on the place where the samurai mansions once stood. Koko-en is actually comprised of nine smaller gardens, and in typical Edo Period style, each is dedicated to a particular species of plants.
