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
ＪＲ姫路駅の改札を出て、姫路城方面の出口から出ると、その先に姫路城が望めます。まるで姫路城の姿をはっきりと見せるように、立ち並ぶビルを押しのけて伸びる通り。姫路に着いたら最初の撮影スポットですよ。 more »After leaving the ticket gate of JR Himeji Station, you can see Himeji Castle ahead of the exit from Himeji Castle. As if the appearance of Himeji Castle is clearly seen, it pushes away the building lined and stretches. It is the first shooting spot when I arrive at Himeji.
姫路駅北口から国宝の姫路城まで伸びるメインストリートです。姫路駅の眺望デッキ「キャッスルビュー」から城を望むと道路の全体を見通すことができます。 more »It is Main Street which extends from Himeji station North exit to Himeji Castle of national treasure. You can see the whole of the road from the Castle view on the view deck of Himeji station.
