Hikone Jyou by heeeeman Hikone Jyou by heeeeman
Hikone castle - The least known of the 4 Japanese castles on the world heritage list, the 4 being Matsumoto, Nagoya, Himeji and Hikone. Nagoya is the only one I haven't visited yet.

Hikone, Shiga prefecture, Japan.

Why is it the least known?

Probably because of it's accessibility. Its a fair way away from major tourist locations and major cities, and there's not much more to look at in the surrounding city. Its also not as picturesque as the other castles.

Its nice to see Hikone get some publicity :D It is definetlly a beautiful city and they recently celebrated their 400th Anniversary too! Their new mascot Hikoneko (?) is so cute!

Hikone... Home of JCMU, or "ミシガンセンタ" as the locals liked to put it. I seriously miss Hikone now, gaah I can't wait to go back!
