World Heritage Coin Sets 2. Himeji Castle

Himeji Castle was constructed in its present form in the beginning of the 17th century by Terumasa Ikeda. It is called "Shirasagi Castle" (White Heron Castle), because the keeps (castle towers), the turrets and other features are reminiscent of an elegant white heron with its wings spread.
