Lovely castle. Enjoyed exploring its compound. Castle interior is equally intriguing with info boards provided. It's so beautiful now, after several years of restoration. Must visit even having to pay

Easily the best castle we visited in Japan. The grounds are huge, can take hours to see everything. Interior is impressive, great opportunity to see how the castles truly were inside.

Arrive early. No later than 10:00am to avoid the crowds. Just after the ticket counter, on the left, you can request an awesome English-speaking guide for free. Makes for a much better experience!!

小寺家の御着城を守る為のお城として、黒田官兵衛孝高が祖父重隆、父職隆と代々守ってきたお城。織田の播磨攻略→毛利攻めの際は、拠点として使えるように官兵衛は羽柴秀吉に明け渡した。その後、信長の乳兄弟池田恒興の息子池田輝政が入って現在の城の基礎を築き上げた。姫路城の縄張りは江戸城と同じ渦郭式で、この縄張りは黒田官兵衛が考案したものとされている。平成27年3月に平成の大改修を終える。

【国宝】登録建造物は5種( イ、ロ、ハ、ニの渡櫓・乾小天守・西小天守・大天守・東小天守)…姫山に設けられた赤松氏の居城にはじまり、秀吉の中国攻めの拠点〜次いで慶長五年(1600)に関ヶ原の戦いの功により城主となった池田輝政による整備、慶長十四年末には概ね完成。大天守は外観五重,内部七階で三基の小天守と渡櫓で繋がれて連立天守郭を構成。白漆喰塗りの城壁の美しさから白鷺城の名で呼ばれている。

別名:白鷺城。1993年12月、奈良・法隆寺とともに日本初の世界文化遺産に登録。2015年3月27日リニューアル。屋根瓦の間に塗られた漆喰も白いが、約3年で黴が生えて黒くなる。本当に真っ白の姫路城が見られるのは今だけ。
