Hachiman-bori, Omihachiman

#1 of 40 in Things to do in Omihachiman
Historic Site Landmark
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.

  • For filming period dramas that take photos at dramas do not become like that, but other locations not would. Cafe aman not harie, looked for a place for lunch, but instead of dishes in meals. Doria's drink was delicious. We recommend.

  • In Omi-Hachiman station went to rental. Is there were a lot of people riding buses and quite away from the train station, so cars, except that the number is not too much, not recommended. However, bicycles are not recommended. Can stop the bike parking are not completely maintained, further paved Hachiman-moat road, so not very advance bike. I think I better go with the car. In the Hachiman-moat canal boat and back and forth, I had a taste. Soundings were just moving in the engine. Because it was a weekday, so not open shop, just by looking that finished the tour. You may try if this is somehow not enough, so go Hachiman-moat, located near Club Hale, taneya.

  • It is the local people. Local volunteers is to do clean-up activities and become a tourist spot in earnest, eventually shooting film and drama to be used and, now one of the leading tourist destinations in the prefecture. What is especially crowded with cherry blossoms and festive spring season as the trail is. I would enjoy getting tired near the scattered Café.
