Hachiman-bori, Omihachiman

(4.1/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • I visited during this season. Narrow compared to the Fukuoka Prefecture Yanagawa River, was sober, but I felt relieved and atmosphere. Then the good times for travellers, as well as along the river walk. Explore the town was fun. Just lunch shop is less, I find walking, eventually finished in a noodle shop.

  • Omi-Hachiman is a famous tourist destination. Certainly the building has become. Before this day was taken of the bride and groom take.... Even not too long, not like in history but also, however there are special views. Spring also go Moat House is a fun, but still feel the challenge cospa.
