Other Sightseeing Spot

A community located in Harie Shinasahi-Cho, Takashima City. The community makes use of “kabata,” interconnected water stations used for daily needs such as washing vegetables through which the abundant spring waters of the area are circulated via canals. The kabata themselves are located on the grounds of private homes and accordingly visitors may not tour them without permission; instead, a guided tour is required to see this unique and beautiful local cultural aspect.

          Shiga Main Areas


          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.
