Hikone Castle 彦根城

Hikone Castle is a modern castle which began construction in 1604 and took about 20 years to complete. Hikone Castle used to have large castle grounds which included a triple moat, an artificial river and a castle town.  The area inside the Nakabori moat was designated as a national “historic site” in 1946 for its stone wall structure that remains in good shape, and as a “special historic site” in 1951 and has been preserved carefully as a national common property.
