Geocache Description:

Himeji Sta.

The Himeji station was established in 1888. Lunch boxes were put on sale in the station in 1890. It is the origin of the Ekiben in Japan. The station building is the largest in Hyogo prefecture at present.

The north side of the station was maintained while the castle repair. An observatory called "Castle View" has been built at the north entrance. It is 2 stories building made by steel and wood frames. Cedar trees produced in Himeji (Himeji Sugi) are used as materials. You can enjoy a view in the second floor.

This cache is placed outside the station. Please enjoy the scenery from the deck when you visit Himeji. After that, please do your work carefully because there are many travelers always.

駅の北側は『城を望み、時を感じ、人が交流するおもてなし広場』というコンセプトで、お城の改修に合わせて整備されました。以前ロータリーがあったあたりは 整地され、お城の展望施設ができました。キャッスルビューと呼ばれるこの施設は2階建てとなっています。鉄と木材を組み合わせた造り で、木材としては安富町産の姫路杉を使用しているようです。
