The castle itself is beautiful and is a national heritage site. It is a Yamajiro or mountain Castle as it was on top of a hill. The view is magnificent as the whole area can be seen. But be prepared to climb it. There is nothing in the interior of the castle and climbing all 6 floors (one way only) is a waste of time.

Amazing. Five stars, two thumbs up, cannot possibly recommend highly enough. If possible, try to get a guided tour! The history of the castle and technique that went into readying it for battle are fascinating.

One of the best castles and museums that we’ve visited. Definitely worth the ¥1000 to park then ¥1200 for the castle and museum. I think I liked the museum even more than the castle grounds because there was some English explaining the historical pieces.

Hikone castle gives you a nice view of the city. The ladders inside to climb up floors are quite steep, not so great for those with young kids or elderly folks with disability. As a solo tourist, I liked all the different explanations and the staff was friendly.

Definitely way better than Osaka Castle .
One of my top locations for Cherry Blossom 🌸.
