About Hikone City

彦根市(ひこねし) is a city located in the northeastern part of Shiga Prefecture, with a population of approximately 110,000 residents. It has a rich history as the castle town of Hikone Domain and has continued to develop as a core city in Shiga Prefecture.

The city’s western part faces the serene waters of Lake Biwa, while the eastern part is characterized by the lush Suzuka Mountain Range. In the central plains, the Seri River, Inugami River, and Uso River flow from the Suzuka Mountain Range and converge into Lake Biwa. This picturesque setting provides a backdrop to the city’s vibrant culture and history.

Hikone City is not only known for its natural beauty but also for its rich culinary heritage. Local delicacies such as pickled fish from Lake Biwa, crucian carp sushi, succulent Omi beef, and sweet Hikone pears are favorites among locals and visitors alike.

One of the city’s most iconic landmarks is Hikone Castle (彦根城), a historical treasure that stands as a testament to the city’s feudal past. Hikone Castle is one of Japan’s designated national treasures and is renowned for its well-preserved keep, moats, and beautiful gardens. Visitors can explore the castle grounds, offering a glimpse into Japan’s samurai history and architectural marvels.

In addition to Hikone Castle, the city boasts a variety of local industries, including bulb production, foundation manufacturing, and Buddhist altar crafting. The meticulously crafted “Hikone Buddhist altars” are not only exquisite works of art but also designated traditional crafts by the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry.

For transportation, the city is served by the JR Tokaido Main Line (Biwako Line), the Ohmi Railway Main Line, and the Taga Line. Major roadways include National Route 8 and National Route 306, with the “Hikone Interchange” on the Meishin Expressway providing easy access. Local bus services, such as the charming “Hikone Castle Circular Bus” known for its retro-style bonnet, make exploring the city’s attractions convenient and enjoyable.

Experience the captivating blend of history, culture, and natural beauty that Hikone City offers. Whether you’re strolling through its historic streets, savoring its delectable cuisine, or exploring the majestic Hikone Castle, this city has something to enchant every traveler.
