The castle around which the city of Himeji has developed represents one of the best preserved in the country, and has been designated as a national treasure and a World Heritage Site. Other landmarks of the feudal age in Himeji include traditional samurai districts, with the renovated homes and artfully arranged gardens adding to the historical core of the city, and a number of museums explaining their history, importance, and relevance to contemporary Japanese culture. The flat and relatively quiet city can be explored on foot, or by rented bicycle, with the topography and lack of traffic making sightseeing in Himeji a breeze. Himeji is in Hyogo Prefecture.
