    Here is the family Temple of the II family. Garden is particularly spacious, beautiful and wonderful. Guests can pamper themselves in a refreshing mood here at the garden and heart is washed.

    Last is insufficient camera memory, because the photos could not be attached to the word of mouth... 再拝 again this time, I took so many pictures so I attach. It was still relatively quiet and spectacular garden. Building is also, as usual, much was not that. It is being presented as a family II straight Tiger women have been nearly proven fictional character and drama, in the temple. However, II, Tiger is men's II family descendants also declared he is. Is not just a story so... angry that-, drama or say anything here 20 years look no more than but not from unknown,-. This temple was built about 1,300 years ago by Enshu Beach name Hubei wells Italian Valley Township about 400 years before relocated to this area seems to be.

    Very pleasantly surprised. Slightly dilapidated temple with three gardens: one dry, and two north and south on two sides of a big tatami room. Not only are the gardens quite high quality, the place was deserted when I visited (summer Sunday afternoon, plenty of people at the castle), could absorb the aesthetics at my leisure.

    Despite the "daruma-ji Temple", is indicative of it only the story of the birth of Sakyamuni, shigemichi and death. Cathedral & gardens is good method is obsolete.

    It is a quiet temple located at the foot of Mt. Sawa. It is a temple of the II family. Rock Garden was respectable.

    Garden of the landscape seen from the living room and tired of silence. Sit and just looking at too much peace at heart will be likely to forget.

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.
