About Omihachiman

Ōmihachiman is a city in central Japan. Himure Hachimangu Shrine has a number of ornate wooden temples. From the shrine, a cable car runs to the top of Mount Hachiman for panoramic views of Lake Biwa. The ruins of 16th-century Azuchi Castle are to the east. Azuchijokaku Museum has a replica of the castle’s gold-painted interior. Boats cruise the canals that crisscross the city, and the wetlands of Lake Sainoko.
