Hikone Castle (hikone) Reviews & Ratings

  • Well worth the visit to this beautiful place. Great views!! The staff was friendly and informative. The architecture and grounds are just amazing. I recommend a visit if you like historical sites.

  • It's gorgeous and one of the few original castles still left. If you're into history then it's a truly must-see place. Complete with wonderful views and grounds. Just be prepared to climb a pretty steep path to enjoy it!

  • Very nice Japanese castle with a lot of history. One of the 12 still very original remaining castles in Japan. Absolutely recommended to go there. Awesome view and history here. Absolutely enjoyed it here, nice atmosphere.

  • A very special place fully surrounded by cherry blossom trees. The castle might not be as impressive as others but it is a national treasure that feels real. The views of lake Biwa from the top are beautiful.

  • Quiet place, but so hard to visit. Invested a whole day to visit here from Kyoto. Castle itself is not an epic one, compared to other famous ones in Japan. Surrounded by quiet town-not a tourist town.
