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.
