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.

  • Like a period drama about Hall, massage. Not seen here for decades, drama. Don't bother at present is he says some descendants of the II family II, Tiger is especially should be a real man who was seen as just a story... about the program. To say the opening Memorial was too uncomfortable. Liked it because it was a set of tickets, now around and came out.

  • Special events of the II family in saga opening Memorial Hall also because NHK Taiga drama Onna Castle straight Tiger has been aired on the anniversary of Hikone Castle fortification 410 were held. Half the country Hall of Fame was as Taiga drama Hall in whole. Good to see a bit nostalgic footage.
