The Return (Day 10) I still call Himeji home...

Coming back to Himeji is like returning home for us. Old friends met us at the JR station and our hotel and joined us for lunch in the bailey in front of Himeji castle

The kind, smiling face of our dear old friend Toshi.

The intricate multiple roofs of Himeji castle.

The students were very interested in the history, design and defences of the 4oo year-old castle, thanks to the knowledge of our 3 guides Toshi-san, Keiko-san and Hata-san. We presented them with Aussie bucket-hats. Oi, oi, oi!
