  • This is much fuller in the Museum attached to the Hikone Castle. If you like history is visited the late hours was seen slowly over about an hour, is enjoyed.

  • The Museum building is a separate building located just before entering the Castle collections shown this audience diversity must remove their shoes.

  • You can learn history over 400 years of the II clan, located next to Hikone Castle. Banner red-aligned body armor and II is particularly impressive. Also in the Japan grounds in the middle of the route and somehow Japanese as relieved.

  • The best value tourist attraction even in the castle. There are detailed explanations about the history of Hikone(which said it belonged to Ishida Mitsunari by the way, before the Ii family razed it and rebuilt it), tea rooms, medieval artifacts... and it's clean and well maintained. You might need a good command of Japanese to fully enjoy it though as English introductions are not too thorough.
  • There are many exhibits. The main cultural exhibits. Omote-goten is impressive.

  • It is pretty good. In the elderly, not able to rise to the Hikone Castle, or crowded abandoned people. This is more than enough.

Where to stay in Hikone

Few international travelers stay the night in Hikone, with most electing to see the castle, admire the lake, and be on their way. Three hours from the capital, and one from Kyoto, Hikone visits usually come as part of a trip from the capital to Kyoto, or a day trip from the latter. Those that do opt to stay in Hikone can choose from a good number of standard hotels between the main train station and the castle grounds, as well as some more characterful, traditional ryokans around the district of Kawara to the south.
