3 Top Things To Do In hikone-shi [1-3]

Hikone Castle

410 Years Since Building! A Beautiful & Wise National Treasure Overlooking Lake Biwa

Hikone Castle has a relation with Ii family. It's hard to be invaded and easy to use, so we can find wisdom everywhere in the castle. The historical interior is also the highlight. What is more, the castle seen from Genkyu-en Garden in the same site is so gorgeous that I can say it has both beauty and strength.

Mt. Kojin

Stunning View In Only This Season! The Rice Fields Glowing In The Setting Sun

They take water into the rice fields from around the Golden Week Holidays ( from the late April to the early May). For the sun sets just the same direction as the rice fields in this season, you can see the beautiful landscape from the top of Mt. Kojin.
