Hachiman-bori, Omihachiman
(4.1/5 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.

  • The 11/1/2016 Hachiman-moat visited Omi-Hachiman city trying to take over. The day before my birthday celebration in settle Marina Lake Biwa to stay and oumi-Hachiman-Hachiman-moat round after check-out for 2 months or so so looking forward to. From the conclusion (hobbies: listening to period drama for hankachō ending filming and I know, were excited) State, and was the worst. So the worst was started. I didn't think 21st century Japan. Contents are as follows. , On sales up to 15:30 with HP 14 was already motivated staff has no-staff ignored here ("I'm sorry" well talked in a loud voice), even being mistaken for Chinese (were ignored because the staff is not Chinese customers do thought) No pride in being Japanese smoking cigarettes, only to stare at this (had to call on the phone in Japan, after Japanese and verified) was, "in Japanese I" of hugging the dog from the inside, came out (have put the dog in the store. Contrary to article 50, paragraph 2 health food) wanted to know the timetable for the "excuse me" I tried to hang out, but ignored. Were ignored because the staff, not the same as on the next flight to wait for Chinese customers say what I thought. (Total 5 people 2 1 men, Haggard came to blue happi coats men, 1 woman) without you, click here to see smoking and was fiddling with mobile. To confirm the Chinese who're talking in a low voice, operated by someone no one is ' in Japanese I "the bluntly said"the next 3:30 "said the middle-aged woman held the dog from inside the store looking for it or not around someone on the front side of the store and came. It's a 14:40 at that time. No matter how few flights Tuesday on weekdays, however, is too much. Past the Yokohama Minato Mirai et al, Osaka South port, large Nakanoshima, wealth many Hori 山松 River, Sado Island Niigata, Ishikawa Kaga and Arashiyama excursion ship, Shiga Chikubu Island, came on board cruise and tour, but modern and foreigners even during the week Convention, did you know that there are many who retire after that is not. After all, such people less than 1000 yen is not worth paying! At the 100 yen too high! And a fit of rage and aboard to give up, even in Omi-Hachiman-Shi iradachi for not immediately went back to Osaka. Thought in biwa Lake terrace and other places too, I risked money in Omi-Hachiman-Shi. Too much service to see what Government is doing? "And outraged, Omi-Hachiman City cultural tourism and tourism policy group to call," Hachiman-moat or will the Administration is? "And confirm. Then those officers who answer the phone, clearly said "Government is no relation between". I see! Rashly and that worked. Boat shop that into the restaurant in a dog is doing, is convinced the worst attitude. I think that lack of understanding on tourism and services. Is actually good memories in the Lake Biwa settle Marina, it was destroyed. Again go to Omi-Hachiman city. And I want to do like people to feel the worst and worst response time was written by various review sites decreases a little.

  • 原本預計在此停留兩小時,卻一待待了四個小時還有點捨不得離去。這裡是世外桃源般的,風景優美觀光客不多,因此能悠閒的在河邊漫步取景,空氣清新舒適。走走停停之餘,買個著名的近江牛餅熱呼呼的吃著美食望著小河邊遊船來往,心情愉悅,也可找家餐廳品嚐著名的近江牛,入口即化的神仙美味。這裡較適合自駕遊,開車的話停在八幡市的市營小幡觀光駐車場(Tel: 0748-33-2411)一次510日圓,附設乾淨的洗手間,由...  more »
