Descripción:Kyoto -- Lake Biwa-ko North Shore
The north shore of Lake Biwa-ko is a treasure-house of Japanese history, for it was in this area that the early warlords roamed and a thriving merchant culture developed. At Azuchi, find a replica of the extravagantly decorated upper levels of the ostentatious Azuchi-jo Castle that warlord Oda Nobunaga built to boast of his power. Further on at Nagahama, find the home territory of Nobunaga's first lieutenant, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who went on to rule Japan. The charmingly restored town of Nagahama is full of shops selling gourds -- Hideyoshi's symbol.
At Hikone is the castle that belonged to Ii Naosuke, prime minister to the last shogun of Japan, and the garden and villas where he entertained state guests. One of these villas, the Hakkeitei, serves as a restaurant and an inn where one can imagine being an early nineteenth century VIP. Back at Hikone-jo Castle, with its precious three-story donjon, there is a marvelous museum of Ii family artifacts with a collection of Noh costumes like no other.
While in this fascinating cradle of culture do not neglect to see the places where the Omi merchants lived. This part of Japan was home to aggressive salesmen, who made themselves rich peddling rice and other necessities around the land, and they did not hesitate to display their wealth in their homes. Some are open to the public at Omi Hachiman and Gokasho.
Perhaps after spending a night in the magical Hakkeitei, divert your attention from history for a while, with a drive deep into the mountains to Shigaraki, home of a great ceramics tradition. Here you will find superb examples of a kind of stoneware pottery loved by tea ceremony masters since the twelfth century alongside humorous statues of the mischievous tanuki raccoon dog. You have probably seen these statues with their jugs of sake standing at the entrances to bars and restaurants luring in customers. But there is no mischief in Shigaraki, just a great deal of beauty. The serious ceramics lover can find a top class contemporary pottery museum as well.
Not far from Shigaraki is the city of Ueno, birthplace of the ninja school of martial arts. The Igaryu Ninja Museum has a unique display of specialized tools and weapons used by ninja.
