Omihachiman Attractions: What to do & Places to Visit in Omihachiman
"My wife wanted to see this location after seeing many NHK drama's . Make sure you get your english explanation from the tourist information before departing by bus to give yourself some of the historical background. The main canal along which the merchants houses were located fell in to disrepair i..."n the 1950's and was scheduled for landfill. However some citzens resisted the landfill and tarted cleaning up the canal. Walk along the canal and get a feel of the Edo period it represents. Riverboat tous are also available although we did not take one.

"There are so many rebuilt castle keeps in Japan, but the keep of this castle has not been rebuilt, although the castle was originally built by one of the most famous warlords of Japan. Actually, the fact attracts many Japanese castle maniacs. If you have been to some Japanese castles and tired of fe..."rroconcrete castle keeps, this one may be interesting. The admission costs JPY500 and it takes about one hour to see everything. The castle keep ruin is located on the top of 199 meters-high Mt Azuchi, so be prepared for many steps. It is a good idea to make a side trip to Hikone Castle, which has an original castle keep.

"Hachiman Himure, alongside Omi-Hachiman's beautiful canals, has a very relaxed atmosphere and is the site of two very cool festivals during the year. One of them, called Sagicho, is a full-on fire festival, with a lot of action, colour and movement. If you can make it in March, I totally recommend i..."t.
Check out this video for more about Sagicho: http://bit.ly/ZCSqgN
