Tourism information around Hikone Castle
With lush trees and the tower of Hikone Castle in the background stands Rinchikaku as if extending out of the large pond that surrounds it. There, also stands Hōshōdai upon a garden hill. Hōshōdai is a rustic, refined architectural structure that acted as a reception hall for guests of honor of the Hikone Domain.
As a plan to unify the building as both a museum and a restoration of its state during its time used for government affairs and ceremonies by the Hikone Domain during the Edo Period, the museum of Hōshōdai was opened on February 11th, 1987, the 50th anniversary of the municipal government.
