Overall, using array Himeji castle building Teikaku model spiral that rotates counter-clockwise 3 times, with starting point in the northern mountain Hime. The first round is called Uchiguruwa (in zones), the second round called Nakakuruwa (middle zone), and the third round is called Sotokuruwa (outer zone). Now all that was left was the living zone which is a complex Uchikuruwa Himeji Castle today. Other zones Sogamae utilized as a region (outermost territories palace) which encircle the city around the palace.
Uchikuruwa inner zone consists of five layers, namely Honmaru (main area), Ninomaru (the secondary), Sannomaru (the tertiary), Nishinomaru (west region), and Demaru (keepers of the palace office). Inside Uchikuruwa zone there are also several other zones, namely Mizukuruwa, Koshikuruwa, and Obikuruwa. Each zone is separated in detail with gates which are named based on the composition of Hiragana "i-ro-ha", like I-no-Mon, Ha-no-Mon, and so on.

History: Palaces Never War
Himeji Castle escaped twice from the catastrophic damage caused by the war in Bakufu era and World War II, earning it the nickname "the palace was never a war" (Japanese: 不戦 の 城; fusen no shiro).
During World War II, Himeji Castle camouflaged from the air by covering strategic parts with black nets. The reason, the palace is definitely going to be an easy target for air attack America because its walls are white looks striking from the air, let alone the army also put its forces on the territory of the palace.
Large-scale air assault on Himeji occurred on July 3, 1945, as a result the city around Himeji Castle destroyed to ashes.

Fires that occurred in the region also Nishinomaru soon be extinguished, thereby building the palace was miraculously spared from the fire fresh vegetables. The next morning, the townspeople reportedly unable to hold back tears of emotion watching Himeji Castle is still standing safely in the middle of town that has been flattened.
There are opinions that say that the Himeji Castle was never subjected to air strikes because it is an important cultural heritage. Much-quoted opinion is a source of debate since the air attack was also destroyed palaces located in other cities in Japan (eg Nagoya Castle), as well as historic buildings that exist in Germany.
