Hikone is about a 50-55 minute ride on JR from Kyoto Station—that is if you take a normal train. You could take a kodama or hikari shinkansen from either Kyoto or Nagoya to Maebara and transfer there to the regular JR line. Hikone is only one stop over and the castle is about a 10-15 minute walk from the station.
A shinkansen ticket is more expensive, but it isn’t too bad if you are going from Nagoya or Kyoto as it is in close proximity to those places and if you want to get there in a hurry.
Makes sense. Thank you for the info. There really seems to be so much to take in, that Hikone is officially on my 'must visit' list. !

What happened to his head ?.
I know the Mito men urinated on it and did various other things to the head but what happened in the end ?.
Was it ever retrieved and returned to the body ?. _________________ "One mans washing machine is another mans music "
