    A Japanese-style sweets café located in Kurokabe Square in Motohama-cho, Nagahama City Shiga Prefecture.

    サイクリングで信楽朝宮エリアにちょこちょこ行きます。その時目的地候補になるのがこちら。 釜でお湯が沸かされてて、2杯目からは自分でお湯を注いで淹れます。 冬はおぜんざい、夏はわらび餅かな。特に冬、寒い中を走って頂くおぜんざいのありがたみはなんとも言えません。そしてお値段もリーズナブル!持ち帰り用のおはぎとかも美味しそう。 店を出る時にはいつもスタッフさんが「気ぃつけてねー」と声をかけて下さるのが嬉...

    Shiga Otsu-shi Ishiyama Temple 1-3-22
    A five-minute drive from the Seta-nishi Interchange, Seta-higashi Interchange, and Keiji Bypass; and a six-minute walk from Ishiyamadera Station on the Keihan Electric Railway. This Japanese-style sweets cafe is located next to the Ishiyamadera Post Office and can be reached by head north on the road from the Ishiyamadera Tourist Information Center. The establishment's name is derived from the name of author Toson Shimazaki, who once stayed in Ishiyamadera. Operating out of an elegant and old-fashioned Japanese-style building, the cafe has a space where customers can enjoy original Japanese-style confections like Matcha Kuzu Nagashi (kudzu starch cakes floating in a tea-based sauce), and Fujino (starch dumplings covered with toasted soybean flour).

    Shiga Hikone-shi Konkicho 1-1
    A teahouse located on the grounds of Hikone Castle. The elegant, mountain pass-style teahouse boasts a sweeping view overlooking the castle tower and town below. Customers can enjoy matcha green tea and Japanese confections in the teahouse' tatami mat seating area. The teahouse's sweets are provided by Osuga, a Japanese confectionary shop situated in Hikone City's Chuo Shopping Street which creates regionally-inspired confections such as Konki jelly. Customers can hear the nearby Jihogane time-keeping bell, whose sound was selected from inclusion in the 100 Soundscapes of Japan list compiled by the Ministry of the Environment, at 9 a.m., noon, and 3 p.m. In addition, there are tourist information books about the Hikone area in the teahouse, making it a great place to gather information as well.

    Shiga Hikone-shi Konkicho 3-41
    "A 15-minute walk from JR Hikone Station. This elegant building stands on an artificial hill in the Genkyuen Garden adjoining Hikone Castle. A reception hall once used by the lords of the domain to entertain guests, today it is used as a teahouse. From the sukiya-zukuri-style structure's tatami mat room, customers can take in a view of the scrupulously maintained garden and enjoy matcha tea made with the spring water of Juo Village, counted as one of the three famous ""Kotosanzan (trio of large Tendai Buddhist temples famous in eastern Shiga Prefecture)"" spring waters; along with confectionary shop Itoju Kaho's renowned Umoregi dumplings. The teahouse is a great place to take a break while exploring Hikone Castle and the surrounding area."

    草津市ではめずらしいタイプのお店です。京都にならたくさんありそうですが。抹茶おぜんざいを試しましたが、しっかり抹茶の味がしました。もう一度、行って他のメニューを試してみようと思います。

    Shiga Otsu-shi Sakamoto 3-chome 10-30

    京阪坂本比叡山口駅に近くの甘味処兼土産店です。テーブル席が店先に面してあります。ぜんざいを注文しました。焼きたての餅が2個入っていましたが、四角の餅の角が固なっていました。少し甘さ控えめでした。

Shiga Areas

around-area-map

Visitors to Shiga prefecture are almost always hopping east across the prefectural border from Kyoto, and they are almost certainly Lake Biwa-bound. Covering an area of 670 square kilometers, Lake Biwa makes up the bulk of Shiga prefecture, with beautiful lakeside paths that offer myriad walking and cycling opportunities, connecting a string of museums, shrines, and picturesque views that finally lead you to Hikone Castle on the eastern side of the lake.
