  • Are being developed and are leaving the old landscape and cityscape. It seems many still many shops and unusual foods and dishes. Ago the troubled children's Kabuki floats were spectacular but during festivals other than the streets and shops while walking just little enough to do.

  • It is was the habit of the rural landscape without too much important. Street vendors in addition to no content! But leisure was the Hikone is no! So when you go to!

  • Standing in the center of Nagahama old houses as well as heck, glass work shop, music store and Cafe. Buy a souvenir in commemoration of Nagahama in good fun to break in.. Say that the region is not it.
