With over 1200 years of history, Enryakuji is one of the most famous temples in Japan. Guided by the chief priest, we learnt a lot about Japan’s history and culture.
The Mt. Hiei Garden Museum, located on the top of the mountain, is a garden inspired by a French artist’s paintings. It’s location offers at the same time a beautiful point of view of Lake Biwa.
The beauty of these temples could only match the surprise of hearing the perfect English of our “monk guide”. We would absolutely recommend these temples to people having interest in momiji, photographs and people seeking inner peace.
The visit of Hikone’s castle and its surroundings was definitely a lot of fun. Meeting with Hikonyan, riding the rikshaw, entering this centuries-old castle, learning about the history of the city… We think everybody can find his interest. We would like to give a special mention to the rikshaw driver, who was really funny and shared his knowledge about the city’s history with passion.
