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.

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.

Original castle from long ago. It is interesting to observe the interior and exterior architectural details. Now in November, there are nice winter sakura and beautiful momiji together.

Main attraction at Hikone. The entrance fee is 800yen for castle and garden. You can also paid an extra of 400 yen (1200yen in total) to enter Hikone Castle Museum. You have to hike a little to reach the castle, it is better to wear shoes. At the top, you will be rewarded with the view of the castles and Lake Biwa. Its beautiful.

Hikone Castle in autumn is the best. It's a good idea to check the appearance time of Hikonyan in advance.
