Lake Biwa is the largest lake in Japan located in Shiga Prefecture and has a very important role as main water source of 14 million people in Kansai area. It's also a good tourist destination of only 30-minute distance from Kyoto.
Shiga Prefecture is a sister state of Michigan State. Both states exchange goodwill mission every year. This year 15 people visited Shiga Prefecture from Michigan State this month and enjoyed a home stay for a few days.
I've seen this boat several times but never got on the boat. I hope to take a fun cruise to see the sunset on board some day.
