Because heavy snow wrote of Hikone Castle, but here are many officials even snow removal has been firmly walk with confidence, you can explore.

  • 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.
  • Nice garden with a lovely pond and Hikone castle as the backdrop. There was a fair amount of reconstruction going on during our visit.
  • Just beautiful. You sure won't regret visiting this garden!
  • good
  • Modest.
