  • Car and coming from the direction of Otsu, and consistency Castle Hill and this guide on the right, ran a little U turn. There is free parking nearly 20 car is turned off. According to the explanations, and moats, away from the parking lot. Go to the beach to go that far? Well, walking around the parking lot exit. It was had a statue of Akechi Mitsuhide, but my image is much different. Where to park the car, and vigorous atmosphere of a castle town, wanted to see the city in cars drove slowly, but could not be found. Unfortunately.

  • Akechi Mitsuhide at honnoji Temple and third world famous but until it was quite the excellent General under Oda Nobunaga. Then the Castle built by the Mitsuhide ruins, is disappointing.

Where to stay in Otsu

You'll find a scattered few accommodations across Otsu, primarily close to Otsu train station. The options located in this area tend to be fairly standard hotels, designed for businesspeople rather than tourists, with simple rooms, pools, and onsite restaurants. Closer to the lake, things get a little more interesting, with some more traditional guesthouses to choose from. Going anti-clockwise round the lake, you'll find some clusters of accommodations close to the primary attractions, such as hot springs. Then again, you can always stay in Kyoto and take a day visit to Otsu.
