We do not have enough time to visit Himeja whilst we are in Japan in April. Last time we were in Japan we visited Osaka castle, and we are wondering if a visit to Hikone Castle would be a worthwhile side trip from Kyoto where we are staying.


I like the quiet atmosphere and beautiful cherry blossom in Hikone but time-wise, there%26#39;s no big difference between Himeji and Hikone.

You can reach JR Himeji station (closest to the castle) in 55 min by shinkasen. (45 min to JR Hikone station by JR rapid)
