On the eastern shore of Biwa-ko, Hikone (彦根) is of special interest for its lovely, historic castle, which dominates the town; it's one of four national treasure castles for being well preserved since feudal times. The adjoining garden is also a classic, and there are remnants of the town's days as a stop along the old Nakasen-dõ Road. Today's visitors also enjoy browsing and snacking in and around the preservation district Yumekyō-bashi Castle Rd.
