I've read quite a bit that weekends at Himeji Castle are really crowded and it seems like it could be hard to see everything in the castle and the gardens within 2-3 hours.
If I wanted to go to Himeji Castle on a Saturday morning in late May, getting there well before opening time, and then leaving Himeji around noon to spend the rest of the day in Kobe, do you think this is feasible? Or is timing at the castle going to be an issue due to crowds?
If it's really going to be bad to go on a weekend morning, I'll revise my itinerary and try to be there on a weekday instead. But Saturday is the most convenient day for me to make this trip.
Thank you :)
