Among of them, Himeji Castle is the most visited castle in Japan and was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In the castle, repair is under construction now, and you can look at the state of the repair.
Because the castle is repaired now, you can look at the state of the construction.
I recommend visiting Himeji-Castle which became beautiful in 2015. (The date that the construction will be finished is not yet decided.)
