Famous Lake Biwako, it is the largest in Japan, I visited during a morning near Otsu, frankly, it does not particularly struck me, a huge expanse of water, but nothing more. But of course, the largest lake in the country deserves respect.

Lake Biwa, beautiful area, and really quiet and peaceful. Nice for strolling and simply enjoying the tranquility.
