Store your luggage around Himeji with Bounce

Located in Japan’s historic Kansai region, Himeji is one of the best places in the country to take a trip back in time. Famous for its ancient white castle, which is one of the last remaining relics of Japan’s feudal era - and certainly one of the most impressive - Himeji is a stunning place to explore the world of samurai and shoguns that can seem very far away in super-modern Tokyo.

Himeji is a good distance from the Japanese capital, and you’ll need to drive for more than seven hours or take a train for more than nine to reach it. But in many ways, this remoteness is part of its appeal. Along with the historic riches of the city, there are plenty of places in the surrounding area where you can get a taste of Japanese rural life and the country's beautiful scenery.

Whether you decide to use your Japan rail pass to bring you to Himeji train station or you prefer to drive to make visiting Himeji Castle easier, you'll have a much better time if you take advantage of a local luggage storage service. Instead of hoping to find coin lockers at Himeji station, consider using a service like Bounce that can store luggage safely, securely, and affordably.

Luggage storage in Himeji

Obviously, Himeji was built long before cars were ever thought of, and that makes it an incredibly walkable city. You can visit Himeji Castle and then soak up the atmosphere of the old town by wandering around on foot and experiencing the city just like people did in feudal Japan. However, you won't want to carry big bags around when you do.

That's why it's so important to find baggage storage where you can leave your things behind for a few hours, a full day, or even longer. And that's why Bounce provides secure luggage storage in Himeji and in thousands of cities around the world.

By partnering with local businesses, we make it easier to find places with generous opening hours that suit your needs. Plus, if you have big bags or other large items, you don't have to worry about finding large lockers that can accommodate them, as our partners can accept bags of any size.

Drop off your unneeded things and get ready for an unforgettable encounter with Himeji Castle and everything else this old town offers.

Himeji city guide

Top things to do in Himeji

Himeji is obviously a history lover's dream. This beautifully preserved town offers a perfect place to step back in time and experience centuries of Japanese life.

But although it sometimes feels like it, Himeji is not a place that is frozen in time. This modern city is also a wonderful place to experience contemporary Japanese life and enjoy great food and shopping. With your belongings safely stored in one of our luggage storage locations, you can sample all the great things to do here, no matter how you like to spend your time.

Museums in Himeji

Himeji Castle

No prizes for guessing we were going to start here. Visiting Himeji Castle is one of the main reasons people make the journey to the town, and you can't really say you've been to Himeji without exploring here for at least a few hours.

Himeji Castle is sometimes known as White Heron Castle, and its 83 rooms give an intriguing glimpse back over more than six centuries of Japanese history. Registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this striking white castle is easily the top attraction in the town and is a place you simply can't afford not to check out while you're here.

Torino Museum

For something completely different, check out Himeji's surprising Torino Museum. The museum is home to more than 50 vintage cars, with a special focus on Italian brands such as Ferrari and Lamborghini. The collection also includes beautiful machines by Aston Martin, Daimler, Mercedes-Benz, and other huge names in international automotive expertise.

It couldn't be much different from Himeji Castle, but this interesting museum offers a great contrast with the city's historic charm. Plus, it's a must-visit for any gearhead to see some of the world's most famous and best-loved sports cars.

Himeji City Science Museum

Located on the northern outskirts of the city, this is one of the best things to do in Himeji if you have kids with you. But even if you don't, the science museum has such fascinating exhibits on the world we live in that it offers something for just about everyone.

As well as exhibits on natural history and outer space, the museum is home to one of Japan's largest planetariums. It's also extremely affordable, with admission currently costing 520 yen, which at the time of writing is less than four US dollars.

These museums don't guarantee a place to store luggage when you visit, so consider trusting your unneeded items with Bounce while you sightsee around town. With locations near Himeji Station and all the best attractions in town, convenient locations are never far away.

Shopping in Himeji

Factory Outlets East

Himeji isn't Tokyo, so you shouldn't expect the virtually endless retail opportunities you'll find in the Japanese capital. With that said, if you are looking for top brands at affordable prices, Himeji's Factory Outlets East provides a good place to do some browsing. You'll find major international brands here as well as locally known Japanese favorites, so it's a good place to visit if you're looking for something unique, stylish, and affordably priced.

youMe Town

This urban mall is definitely one for locals, not tourists. That means shopping here will give you a glimpse of contemporary Japanese life. Along with stores selling everything from fashion to housewares to food, you'll find a food court and an entertainment center for kids, making this an excellent place to spend some time and do some shopping the way the locals do.

Piole Himeji

Located within sight of Himeji Castle, this is a convenient mall that provides everything a traveler is likely to need. If you find yourself needing to do some shopping after visiting Himeji Castle, you can find a variety of stores here, including a good Japanese gift shop that's great for souvenirs.

Restaurants in Himeji

Kōhōseki

This extremely popular restaurant in the center of town is the perfect place to try exceptional cuisine based on the culinary traditions of neighboring China. Leave your bags behind at a convenient luggage storage and treat yourself to classical Chinese dishes in this quintessentially Japanese city.

Eel restaurant Hiiragi

Located at the base of Himeji Castle, this traditional Japanese eatery specializes in eel dishes, as the name suggests. Tuck into sashimi and sushi built around this flavorful fish, and you'll be eating the way locals do.

Eel is a big part of the local diet, and you'll find several restaurants specializing in this unique fish around town. Still, this is one of the best places to try a food that Himeji locals have been eating for generations.

Chanko Kurumae

It doesn't get much more Japanese than this. Run by a family steeped in the art of sumo, this restaurant specializes in the traditional local hot pot made with seasonal ingredients. Think fresh seafood, noodles, rice, and the exquisitely balanced flavors Japanese cuisine is known for. If you're looking for a hearty, filling, and, above all, authentic Japanese meal, this is where you'll find it.

Conclusion

Himeji may lie quite some distance from the Japanese capital, but thanks to its stunning historical monuments, including Himeji Castle itself, it remains one of the most popular places to visit in the country for anyone with an interest in history.

However, this city has more going on than just museums. It's also a great place to do some shopping, try traditional Japanese foods, or explore the countryside in a part of the country many visitors never make it to. And while it can be very difficult to find anybody in town who speaks English, the relative lack of overseas tourists they get means you'll be welcomed everywhere you go.

As is universally the case, you'll have a much better time if you leave your bags behind at a convenient luggage storage. That's where Bounce can help. Whether you plan to spend the day visiting Himeji Castle or would rather immerse yourself in the city's food and entertainment options, it will be much easier to enjoy everything that makes Himeji so special if you are not weighed down by stuff you don't need.

Himeji makes a great place to visit as part of a broader exploration of this area of Japan. Bounce also offers convenient and affordable luggage storage services in nearby cities like Hiroshima, Nagoya, and Osaka, so you can leave your suitcases and backpacks behind and see a side of Japan many foreign visitors never get to explore.
