Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kinki / Shiga Prefecture / Nagahama / Nagahama Castle Historical Museum
Inspect an array of artifacts relating to the Edo period, and even earlier periods, at Nagahama Castle Historical Museum. The replica castle was rebuilt in 1983 following the advice of a professor of historical architecture from Tokyo Kogyo University, and was erected within the remaining walls of the original 16th-century castle, which was demolished by the Tokugawa regime in 1615. Exploring the internal museum, you'll come across displays of historic firearms, samurai swords and armor, photographs, and telescopes. Climb to the fifth floor to treat yourself to picturesque vistas across the neighboring lake.

Nagahama Castle Historical Museum Reviews
城内は歴史博物館となっていました。 展望階以外の各階にガラス扉があるので、空調がしっかり効いていて夏場は特に助かりました。 展望階では長浜市と琵琶湖が一望出来て素晴らしかったです。 また、長浜駅からお城までは、歩いて5分程度なので 気軽に行けます。入場料は9月30日まで400円でした。 more »The castle was a history museum. Because there was a glass door in each floor except the observation floor, the air conditioning was effective well, and it was especially saved in summer. It was wonderful to be able to see Nagahama City and Lake Biwa on the observation floor. From Nagahama Station to the castle, it is about a 5-minute walk away. The admission fee was 400 yen until September 30.
駐車場も、2時間無料で、お城までの公園も綺麗で、天守閣からの、眺望も、最高でした。人が集まってるので、何か？と思ったら、ポケモンGOだったみたいで、お宝ありかも。 more »The parking lot was free for two hours, and the park to the castle was beautiful, and the view from the castle tower was also great. People are gathering, so what? I thought, it was like Pokemon GO, it might be a treasure.
A neat little museum with a cheap ticket cost. They do not cater to foreigners so if you don't read Japanese you're mostly just paying to look at some dioramas, archaeological finds from the surrounding area, and a 360 scenic view of the surrounding area. My Japanese is limited but I had a great time.
Re-built castle near the Lake Biwa shoreline. Quiet as it is located in a park. Small museum inside the catle. Recommened main attraction is the sights from the top of the castle. Relativelt cheap entrance and ticket prices. Best to go on a day with good weather to allow for nice views of of the lake and also the surrounding city.
