Odani Castle, Nagahama

3.1
Odani Castle was a Sengoku period mountain-top castle located in the present day town of Kohoku in Higashiazai District, Shiga Prefecture, Japan. Only the ruins remain today. It was the home castle of the Azai clan and the mountain it was built upon was considered to be impregnable.However, the castle fell during Oda Nobunaga's siege in the Genki and Tenshō eras (Siege of Odani Castle).SignificanceOdani Castle is regarded as among Japan's Five Greatest Mountain Castles, along with Kasugayama Castle, Nanao Castle, Kannonji Castle and Gassantoda Castle. Now it is one of Japan's nationally designated historical ruins.

  • Climb in the car on the way, but the parking is less. This is the castle of Azai Nagamasa. A few years ago in the Taiga drama, Jiang became known. Great view of Lake Biwa from the ruins of a castle.

About 40 minutes until the hall mark? Mountain on the way Tiger Imperial Mountain Observatory Nobunaga put the team in front of me and, in addition, Vantage saloon near the far Kosai. I don't despise people coming up from the room space I had a bear infested notes billboards shown in mountain.

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.
