  • 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.
  • Good Job
  • Visit 12/2017. Famous as "daruma-ji Temple", is a family Temple of the II family. And landscaped gardens, is very beautiful. Is that not many tourists in and around the Park and can be relaxing ☆ can also, "Sawa Castle" Castle and the Duke of Ishida Mitsunari, climbs from the back of the environment here. Hikone station 20 minutes. Hikone station has bike rental station Lynn will come by bicycle too, so it's nice. Free parking in front of the temple. 400_円_9_:_00-17:00 in winter up to 16:00.

  • It was a very good restaurant. Rock has a meaning in space, seeing the idea with wonderment. I think when portraits of Duke of Ishida Mitsunari, Sawa Castle come and stop by the clips.

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.
