Hachiman-bori, Omihachiman
(4.2/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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.
