Hyogo Prefectural Museum of History

It is the text from here.

Located on the site of Himeji Castle, Hyogo Prefectural Museum of History was fully reopened in April 2007. The building was designed to resemble Himeji Castle. You can learn about the history and culture of Hyogo Prefecture and Himeji Castle in the museum. There is also a booth where you can try on items such as Samurai armor and a "Juni-hitoe", a set of formal and highly complex kimono garments worn only by court-ladies.
