Hikone, Japan

I lived in Hikone for 2 years when I was a child. It's a mid sized town right between Osaka and Kyoto on the shores of Japan's largest lake Biwako. At times it was great, at times it was horrible. Overall, it was so life changing I have no idea who I would be if I had never gone. Part of me will always be Japanese.
