After arriving at JR/Sanyo Himeji Station, exit through the CENTRAL EXIT, heading North, you will see Himeji Castle. This is the main street of Himeji (Outemae Street), running parallel to the East of this main street is an arcade (Miyuki Street). 588 Guest House is on this arcade. First, go to the arcade and head North. Heading North up the arcade, you will cross one big street, and few smaller ones. When you hit the second big street, there will be a Mister Donuts on the corner. Cross this intersection, still heading North. You will enter another roofed off area. 588 Guest house is on the right, just passed this intersection.
