  • I'm in Nagahama, you are definitely worth visiting. If you like castles more are. Nagahama Castle, Park, was located a few minutes walk from the West exit of JR Nagahama station. Admission is adults 400 Yen, children 200 yen / hours 9:00-up to 5:00 PM. Smoking in the hotel, and exhibit photography was banned. Hope the summits Mt. Ibuki from the top floor of the Castle, including the Lake, has been satisfied.

  • From JR Nagahama station, 5 minutes walk from Castle because no value as a castle. (Elevator available) its namesake Museum (admission: adult ¥ 400) is the exhibition rooms on the second floor and was available only on the 3rd floor in a few minutes in. However, this place (Nagahama) became the starting point of Hideyoshi and became a military base for the humble battle value is where it is. View of Lake Biwa from the castle is a must see. (Yutaka Park on free P)

  • 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.

  • Small museum and nice view of the city from the top. Worth a visit if you're interested in the area.
  • Worth visiting, recommended !
  • Nice place for walking and good view for the sunset near the lake.
  • Nice little observation deck and museum (all in Japanese).
  • 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?

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.
