... carry your bike up and down the stairs, across platforms and into trains. The bike I had for the day was a mountain bike and quite heavy. We left the apartment at 8 and arrived in Hikone at 10.30. Unbagged the bikes and then off. We headed off for Hikone Castle. Hikone Castle was built in 1622.

Most hostels do not have elevators, regardless of the number of floors. There is a large common room for relaxing and meeting other travelers or using the free wi-fi.
