    It is a castle that Hideyoshi built. I stopped by before heading out to Hikone Castle. Is that little section of the stone wall was moved to Hikone Castle. The sunset was beautiful. Then, please stop by. Could not find the Museum because it was evening is regret.

    Nagahama Castle was completely destroyed in the Tensho earthquake rolling sealing of the successive Lords such as the castle was in the early days of the Edo period. Have survived almost remains recycled, Hikone Castle, near the temples, shrines and ruins remains. It is a restored Castle was restored in 1983, imagine from Nagahama Castle and his contemporaries, including advice, specialist of the history of the castle was the first place any kind of record, there. To use as a Museum, but is said to have had a plan to restore the wooden, was restored in reinforced concrete. I think unlikely and advisers not convincing about restored in reinforced concrete seems to come in, but that first there in such circumstances Nagahama Castle Museum is visited on the assumption that visitors from this particularly seem frustrated. Important museum exhibition is Nagahama Castle history focusing on medieval history of Hubei (warring States period) General, shall be handled with. I think (staff I) because it is the Municipal Museum content does not constitute disappointing thing is expected. Special exhibitions are also held occasionally, so take a look at it and what I think. Also located in Nagahama Castle Museum, Park and for its plum blossoms, could also go to the plum season. In addition, because the angle is felt the most in real size of Lake Biwa in Shiga Prefecture is Lake Biwa Nagahama enjoying the views from the rich parks along the shore?

    Is not the place to come at the Castle looking for (only in Museum) views from the Castle often watched on beautiful Lake Biwa player. Spring is a beautiful cherry blossom I wonder. Hotel is clean and easy to navigate. Yutaka Park is wide. It was far from the car park. What time do you?
