Hikone

Castles · Landmarks · Sacred & Religious Sites
A small city on the shores of the country's largest lake, Hikone draws in visitors with its fine castle. The early 17th-century citadel has remained remarkably well preserved, with its original tower officially designated a national treasure, and the ring of its bell (every three hours) listed as one of the most important sounds in the country. Trips to Hikone rarely stray too far from the castle; the immaculate garden that surrounds it and the shopping street leading towards it constitute the two other main attractions in town. Add Hikone and other destinations in Japan to your travel itinerary using our Japan online journey planner.
