In 2011, the Go and Azai Sisters Expo is publicized everywhere in Nagahama. This is the east side of Nagahama Station.
Go to the west side of Nagahama Station to catch the shuttle bus going to the Go and Azai Sisters Expo pavilions. Buy the roundtrip bus ticket at the little office near the bus stop at the train station.
The 1,000 yen ticket includes admission to all three pavilions and roundtrip shuttle bus fare. Best to go the Odani pavilion first, then the Azai pavilion, and the central Nagahama pavilion on the way back.
The shuttle bus leaves once or twice an hour. It comes with a bus guide.
The Odani pavilion is at the foot of Odani Castle. Shuttle buses run between the three pavilions. Best to take a shuttle bus from Nagahama Station (West exit) and go directly to this pavilion.

At the Odani pavilion at the foot of Mt. Odani, a shuttle bus to Odani Castle with a tour guide is provided for 500 yen roundtrip during 2011. A lot easier than walking up the mountain.
