Himeji City Mascot

Commemorating the 120th anniversary of Himeji City, the 400th anniversary of the construction of Himeji Castle, and the 50th anniversary of the opening of Himeji Port, Shiromaruhime was chosen as the winner of a public contest for a character that could represent "our hometown of Himeji." The cute Shiromaruhime, with her pure white color symbolizing the "White Egret Castle" (as Himeji Castle is also known), is loved by all generations, and a wide variety of Shiromaruhime goods, such as key chains, handkerchiefs, pouches, and socks, can be purchased at souvenir stores near Himeji Castle and Station. How about a cute Shiromaruhime item as a souvenir of your visit to Himeji?
