Hachiman-bori, Omihachiman

4.0
The 4.75 km (2.95 mi) long canal of Hachiman-bori was established in the late 16th century, offering visitors historical and picturesque views of the city's old-world infrastructure. Built by Toyotomi Hidetsugu (daimyo and nephew to the country's ruler) as he constructed his castle and town, the channel went on to bring people and trade, helping significantly in the development of the region and neighboring towns. Almost filled in at times, this peaceful vein of water has been restored and protected by the efforts of the local population, and now makes a good place to stroll and take in the many preserved traditional buildings.

  • Hachiman-moat is flowing at the foot of Mt. Hachiman. Was made during the Hachiman Castle was built, connecting Lake Biwa and helped in the transportation of goods. It probably had played a role was a lively town originally, Omi-Hachiman rakuichi rakuza incorporating business Logistics functionality is important. Guests can enjoy a landscape in a beautiful moat, filled with old mansion and the warehouse, such as cross-strait atmosphere. Overlooking the moat along the narrow promenade, pleasure boats swaying go sight you can explore. It was decided until the reclamation plans of the moat, such Hachiman-moat is advancing on the border of high economic growth. Due to strong efforts in such an average, Hachiman-moat to protect citizens and wish the reclamation plan finally withdraw. It seems revived the beautiful Riverside scenery. This is your moat walk that history and feel more beautiful. By the way, is a famous canal tour, here not to ship from different locations, so care is required.

  • Hachiman-moat in 1585, Toyotomi hidetsugu in the Hachiman-Yama Castle built, built the town to begin with. It is a wise ruler connects Hachiman-moat and Lake Biwa by hidetsugu, by ships passing the Lake Biwa to call at Castle, attracting people, goods and information, fun rakuza system, this castle with rich ones. My uncle did not devote only to be taken over after the lineal Hideyoshi is a far cry. I did not perish in the real life as far as Hideyoshi had a little knack for this, I would be.... Hidetsugu was still as a wise ruler is the exact opposite of the stupidity of the tea ceremony to neglectful, collateral (Shuji), leaving only his lineal relatives (Hideyori), Hideyoshi is known from the people of Omi-Hachiman.
