  • This isn't a tourist spot, it's a place of worship and prayer. So don't seek it out, but if you stumble upon it take a look around. It's always very quiet.  more »
  • Facing the yumekyobashi Castle Road has attracted tourists of Hikone. Red Gate of the temple is dedicated to Tokugawa Ieyasu. There is also Temple Yodo 念持仏. There is even a place to stay during the Chosun dynasty. It is a temple that made history.

  • The Temple of the Jodo sect. Temple is a 見処 lot. There is also a head of the nagato Mamoru Kimura shigenari. I think Temple should stop by when we came to Castle Road.
