    Hikone Castle is not comparable to Himeji Castle, but its surrounded by many cherry trees. It must look gorgeous during the blossom season. And in the woods below one side of the castle, there are huge number of white birds. It's very impressive to see them returing to their nets in late afternoon. And we do like the lake sunset.

    Hikone is easily reached by Shinkansen from Tokyo with a short trip (5 minutes) in a local train. The town has much to offer - an island temple easily reached by boat; a hugely impressive feudal castle (1 of only 4 genuine castles still standing in Japan) with a good museum and surrounded by 2 moats and a beautiful stroll garden. Close to the castle is are attractive streets with good quality shops and some old houses as well. The town is comfortably quiet compared to the nearby Kyoto which is now like Venice and seriously overcrowded. The one disadvantage which the town could fix very easily is that the bus service does not have information on routes and stops in English unlike Kyoto. Finally the time to visit is late March early April when the cherry blossom for which Hikone is famous is in flower.

    Hikone is just the right distance from Kyoto when travelling by bicycle to ride around Lake Biwa. Its castle grounds turn pink in the spring cherry blossom season and reflect beautifully in the moat's waters. Other seasons have their own distinctive attractions. In all seasons the local beef is great, all you need is an appetite.

    Nice castle and the lake.

    Nice castle and the lake. It will probably take just a day to see everything. There aren’t really much else to do, so I would recommend Hikone to those, who can’t go to Himeji or who really like castles. There are nice mountains as well, but this is another story.

    I enjoyed walking around the castle and garden.

    I enjoyed walking around the castle and garden. I was surprised by how much there was to see at the castle grounds. I found myself intrigued by the architecture and most of all the view from the castle was amazing. You get a 360 view of the whole town including Lake Biwa.

    I could easily located the whereabout of Toyoko Inn while getting out of the train station. There was careful design in how to maximize the use of space while not compromising comfort and ease of movement for two persons sharing a small room. For breakfast, the food was good. There was a fresh supply of food on the serving table.

    Gorgeous facilities with a beautiful view and delicious breakfast. We were visiting from USA to see my sister studying at the next door Michigan Center. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to do the same - rooms are western style and spacious and staff are happy to help despite the language barrier.

    The recommendation of room selection is non-smoking room. I’m the type of people who cannot bear smoke smell any more. Room is very clean which makes me satisfied. If I could have a travel in Hikone again. I’m sure that I will book this hotel again!

    The staff are hard to fault, they were polite, friendly and helpful. The general aesthetic of the room (and hotel) were great. The breakfast was execellent both in terms of flavour and variety and things were well organized.

    Nice apartment near Hikone Castle, restaurants, grocery stores, and other shopping. Very easy to access apartment. It had snacks and water ready. Heaters were already active when I arrived, so it didn't take long to warm up.

    As soon as I arrived, I felt like a VIP! It’s the fanciest hotel I’ve ever stayed at, and it felt amazing to be there. Breakfast was delicious, and had a good variety. I loved the apple juice!

    Just across from the station & plenty of free parking. Contactless checkin was great, although team members were in hand to help. Good breakfast included - plenty of variety (& marshmallows!)

    Hikone was an optimal stop for me on my cycle around Lake Biwa, and I think this guesthouse is good value for money if you're only there for a single night.
