Otemae Street, Himeji
Set against the background of Himeji Castle, a World Heritage Site, Otemae Street makes a very attractive stroll stretching some 1.2 km (0.75 mi) from Himeji station to the castle. Offering a superb view of the castle, which sits high atop a hill at the far end of the street, this nicely paved, tree-lined boulevard provides great vibes and good photo opportunities. Sit on a bench and feel the energy of local life, or admire numerous bronze statues by famous Japanese sculptors. Rows of camphor and ginkgo trees provide shade as you wander past restaurants and browse through simple flea market stalls.

Otemae Street Reviews
前回訪問した際にはまだ駅広周辺が工事中でしたが、すっかり整備され非常に道幅も広いすっきりした大通りです。駅から姫路城口へ出ると真正面に姫路城が見え、当通りを突き当り迄すすむと姫路城に辿り着きます。訪問当日は浴衣まつりの最終日の午後で広い歩行者用通路(姫路城に向かって左側)は出店と来場者で溢れていました。 駅広にはバス、タクシー等以外の一般車両は侵入禁止のようで駅前で目にする大混雑の風景がないのはこ... more »When I visited last time, the area around Station Hiro was still under construction, but it was completely maintained and the width of the road was very wide and clear. When you go out to himeji castle exit from the station, you will see Himeji Castle in front of you, and if you proceed to the end of the street, you will reach Himeji Castle. On the day of the visit, it was the afternoon of the last day of the Yukata Festival, and the large pedestrian walkway (left toward Himeji Castle) was overflowing with shops and visitors. It seemed from such a policy that there was no scenery of the large congestion to see in front of the station like the general vehicle other than the bus, taxi, etc. in the station wide. There are also many statues of monuments throughout the pedestrian walkway, so it's fun to recommend them.
JR姫路駅から姫路城大手門まで一直線に続く道です。駅前は百貨店が２つあるなど、商業の中心としての華のある地区です。お城に近づくと、しっとりとしてきます。歩道に鯱があったりして、いかにもお城へ続くといった雰囲気でした。 more »This road leads straight from JR Himeji Station to Himeji Castle Otemon. There are two department stores in front of the station, and it is a gorgeous district as a commercial center. When you get close to the castle, it will become moist. There was a place on the sidewalk, and it was the atmosphere which really continued to the castle.
From Himeji Station to Himeji Castle, the sidewalk is very wide and easy to walk. There are many arcade streets on the street. It is a beautiful road.
It is a road that extends straight from Himeji station to Himeji Castle.
