    夫婦で利用しました。滋賀観光で神社仏閣にお参りし、湖北になりますが、濁り湯ということで決定。建物は新しくて、10畳と6畳の2間続きでした。洗面も広く、ゆったりとした部屋です。食事は会場食で、コロナ禍の関係で、距離を開けての配置です。夕食は、近江牛鍋付季節の会席「茶々の華」で生ビールを飲みながら堪能しました。お風呂は、内湯の濁り湯とぬるめの湯、露天風呂は少し熱めでした。もちろん、到着後、夕食後、早朝...

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.
