Miraculously survived SkyWatch

Himeji Castle has miraculously survived
while many other Japanese castles were destroyed
in the Meiji period or burned in the Second World War.

Himeji Castle,
known for its beauty and supposed resemblance to an egret
was constructed in the Warring States Period.

It is noted for the maze like approach to the main castle tower
and its various devices for defense.
