Northeast of Hikone Castle, Genkyu-en has been designated as a National Place of Scenic Beauty. Centering on a huge pond, the garden with 9 bridges was built by Naooki Ii, the 4th lord of the Ii clan, in 1677. With Hikone Castle in the background, the beautiful Rinchikaku kiosk seems to extend into the pond.
