Genkyu-en Garden is a Daimyo ("feudal lord") garden located to the north east of Hikone-jo Castle, created to resemble the Eight Views of Omi that in turn originate from the Eight Views of Lake Biwa and the Eight Views of Xiaoxiang, China. A representative example of the Japanese Daimyo garden style, it is a designated Japan Heritage site. September every year sees the holding of the "Meet to Hear the Sound of Insects in Genkyu-en," and November the "Fall Genkyu-en Illuminations," both allowing you to enjoy a rich garden experience.
