Photo Journal: Captivating castle

The grounds of UNESCO World Heritage site Himeji Castle are seen lit up with LED lights in Himeji, Hyogo Prefecture, on Nov. 9, 2017. A path of 100,000 LED lights has been created in Sannomaru Square on the castle grounds to resemble a course from the Edo period. The lighting, which is designed to encourage visitors to stay on until the evening, will remain in place until Nov. 26. (Mainichi)
