Day trip to Hikone

English Japanese

I still had a train ticket, the expirely date is tomorrow.

So I decided to go somewhere by this ticket!
The place is Hikone, I have never been there 🙂

From my place to Hikone, it’ll take 2.5hrs and had to change the train for 2 times.

But there are many old houses for worth to see.

I took train again.
