5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2014 NEW

This is a popular tourist destination. A ride of 60 mins on Lake Biwa will cost around USD$2000. Remember to get a discount coupon at the visitor center (in the JR station). You can get 20% off for the cruise ticket. The cruise has a lot to offer, but there is no English guide. http://www.biwakokisen.co.jp/english/
