Let's enjoy Biwako cruise #1

Posted by
Hiro (Kyoto, Japan) on 16 May 2018 in Transportation.

Biwako 琵琶湖 (Lake Biwa) is the largest lake in Japan. It is located in Shiga prefecture, northeast of Kyoto. My wife and I enjoyed a cruise on this attractive lake.
The name of the ship "MICHIGAN" is from US state of Michigan, the sister state of Shiga.
