  • 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.

  • 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.
