"Genkyuen Garden" located on the grounds of the Hikone Castle was historically home to the feudal lords. This landscaped garden is a replica of "Omi Hakke" (Eight Views in Omi), which were selected referring to Chinese Imperial Villa "Eight Views of Xiaoxiang".
Many events are held throughout the year on the premises for tourists who can appreciate the scenery unique to a feudal lord's garden.
