A businessman admitted Sunday to flying a drone that was found stuck the previous day among the roof tiles of Himeji Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site in Hyogo Prefecture, the police said.

The 49-year-old executive from Kitakyushu was quoted by the police as saying that he was using the unmanned aircraft to take pictures of the recently renovated feudal fortress to post in a magazine. He reportedly contacted a police station in Kyoto on Sunday morning to claim responsibility for the accident.
