    Shiga Pref. Moriyamashi Imahamachou 3089

    今回は、遊具で遊ばずに、遊具のある広場から南側へずっと歩いていきました。森の中に入っていきますが、道は整備されていてランニングをする人や犬の散歩をする人の姿も。途中、「モリモリ山」なる標高99mのポイントを発見したときが子どものテンションがマックスでした。※公式には守山市内には山は無いです。 北側も未散策の場所があるのでまた行ってみたいと思います。

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.
