  • Facing the Lake shone against Nice foliage. Actual Castle was a bit away and had a monument. Nagahama itself in place of the warring States period know better.

  • From JR Nagahama station walk 5-6 minutes. Should be an epic historical assets, but the original stone, Derrick wood is transported to the Hikone Castle, and is now building opened as a Museum of history of the Showa era. Humble Ke Dake battlefield, odani Castle, Sawa Castle, Azuchi Castle, Hikone Castle, was supposed to be visible from the 5th floor panoramic observation deck, I couldn't see for the EAS. But you could feel the history from the observation deck.

Where to stay in Nagahama

With accommodations ranging from traditional Japanese ryokans to Western-style high-rise hotels, Nagahama offers plenty of places to stay. The majority of the city's lodgings lie within walking distance from the station, also putting the main attractions at your doorstep. Traditional lodgings on the waterfront and at the edge of the central park are popular, with many providing onsite restaurants and luxurious private onsens. If you're traveling on a shoestring, a smattering of more modest complexes lies farther back from the waterfront, equipped with all the basic amenities required for a good night's sleep.
