  • The Temple of the drama next year "II, Tiger ' edges. Common in Hamamatsu City renounced her Castle straight Tiger Temple, brought up, Tiger Tiger pine (Naomasa, Hikone Castle in the first) and Temple of the rim. It is a temple of deep quiet and quaint atmosphere. It is rich so surprised of Ishida Mitsunari material located at the foot of Sawayama Castle. People forget when open, a stunning depth of the garden. Set with ornate Hikone Castle is recommended.

  • I stopped by after a tour of the Hikone Castle. Temple II family is like, but tourists also quietly reduced staff. Admission: adults 400 Yen, children 150 Yen payments, tour the grounds. Settles down the mind, but the garden is beautiful in Dharma, the children did not enjoy is like. Was prohibited in the building, and a statue of Ishida Mitsunari, was visiting.

  • 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.
  • The temple located at the foot of the Hikone Castle and Sawayama castle on the opposite side Tokaido main line across. Original from Temple located in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka was buried in section II with moisturizing and II's temple said. Hikone Castle was one of the national treasures and still in existence only to tourists the focus there. Sawayama Castle, Ishida Mitsunari was executed after Castle and Castle and the forest now remains remains a bit. However, because such global tranquility while tourists are sparse. And landscape to this a slight rustling sound at the outset in the admission purposes only once, to-ji Temple, was fascinated in an instant. It is time to soothe the mind, by all means visit places.

  • 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.

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