Nagahama-jou is a concrete reconstruction in Nagahama, off of Lake Biwa. It contains a museum inside. If you're just interested in yoroi maybe the exhibits will not excite, but there are many artefacts on display from the Edo and earlier periods, if you want to...More

As far as I know, there are only 12 genuine castles in Japan. Matsuyama, Hikone, Himeji, Hirosaki, Inuyama, Iyo-Matsuyama, Kochi, Marugame, Maruoka, Matsue, Matsumoto, Uwajima. Nagahama is a fake.

You can freely see the castle from outside, unlike some other castle (Hikone, ..) inside it's all modern (you will not see the woden part of the castle from inside). They will give you a brief history paper in English about the history of the...More

We stopped two nights in Hikone so on second day took a day trip to Nagahama. Time wise it's about 15 - 20 minutes by local train. First on our walking route was Nagaham Castle, built by Toyotomi Hideyoshi in 1575. There is an excellent...More
