Hachiman-bori, Omihachiman

4.1
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.

    Little Venice Green is the name given him, charming small village, walk into channels, or feet at the water's edge, to see the Museum of roof tiles. See the temples, take the cable car to the view.

    Aboard the ship with the moat, enjoyed a 30-minute. Price 1000 yen. The ship's boat with the engine. Almost no explanations from a boatman, listen to the tape of the remarks. Kinda lacked in taste, but I feel good, very good.
