Visit during a festival!

Castle Road is filled with shops and restaurants. The best burgers in Hikone are in a little street side cafe here! The best time to visit is during a festival.

Hikone isn't a metropolis, but this street offers an interesting array of eating and shopping options. Not much English is spoken, but don't let that deter you. A good thing to do after you've been to the castle.

This small shopping district near the castle has retained a lot of traditional charm and is a great place just to meander or to pick up souvenirs, mostly of the food kind. In summer, there is a wonderful festival where residents wander the streets in summer kimono, just enjoying the atmosphere. ^^

Purpose built tourist strip with little soul but plenty of souvenirs. Spend your money at the real shops in the town centre instead.
