  • Very nice garden, nice walk to do if you are passing through this city. Must be beautiful in autumn!

  • It seems to be relatively well-maintained. It doesn't take much time to walk. The background to looking up at Hikone Castle is a harmonious view of the picture.

  • There is a big pond where you can go with the castle and set price, and it was a place where the atmosphere was felt and it settled down. You can also get there from the castle.

  • Such a beautiful Japanese garden right outside Hikone Castle. I recommend visiting this garden right after you tour the castle.
  • A decent Japanese garden with a fantastic view of the keep if you want some scenic shots. Just wished it would be included in the main ticket but I found it worth the little extra they ask for.
  • Pretty garden by Hikone Castle
  • A nice castle park with good view of the castle. It's not a big garden but after walking up to and down from Hikone Castle, it's a nice place to feed on your Onigiri and other konbini material, sit in the shadow and just enjoy the view of the garden and Castle above the trees.
  • We went to the castle and stopped at the garden only because the ticket price also covered the garden entrance. It turned out to be exceeding our expectations. It's peaceful and pretty. There is a tea ceremony experience room for ¥500 each that's worth trying.
