a really beautiful scenic landscape of the city when around the castle grounds. the castle is very intricate and beautiful from all angles. a very picturesque place if you love to visit and observe castles and old structures. the garden there is quite pretty, not out of the ordinary i find. highly recommended to visit once you are in the region. it is also not very crowded so i was able to snap many pictures easily. if you like japanese history, this is also the place for you.

Nice castle in excellent condition. Quick 10-15 min walk from the station. Not much else to do in Hikone aside from the castle and the castle and surrounding park will only take 60-90 min so yo can be back at the station in 90-120 min.

Fantastic castle to visit! Heritage site and much of it is original! Very beautiful garden and sights with a lot of information in English. Would recommend to Museum too.
The steps in the castle are quite steep and there is a climb from the bottom so be careful if you have mobility issues or are wearing short pants/skirt.

Established in 1622, this castle complex is now almost 400 years old. Try to visit early in the day, or late to avoid crowds. Be prepared to climb to enjoy the best views the castle has to offer.

Good deal if you get the package. Short line. Nothing inside the castle except stairs. Stairs are steep but have handrails. Difficult if you have small children. Gorgeous view from the top.
