Himeji Castle donjon complex

One of the most complex Japanese castles is Himeji, comprising a total of 82 buildings in total! A large number of them are located in the donjon complex, which includes 3 yagura turrets and 4 connecting passages.

In this photo, behind the surrounding walls and right in front of the iconic donjon, you can see three of them: looking from the left side is the “Nishi Kotenshu” turret, connected by the “Ha Watariyagura” passage to the “Inui Kotenshu” turret.
