Shiga-ken is next to Kyoto. It's 10 minutes by JR from Kyoto station.
Very nice auberge is in the north of Shiga-ken. [L'Hotel du Lac]
The dish is also wonderful seriously. A stay of a cottage can relax.

On holiday in Japan but Tired of busy streets, seen too many temples ?
Then treat yourself to this hotel. We stayed in the Japanese style villas and it's the best way to experience minimalist Japanese architecture (including futons) but with all the modern comfort you can imagine.
The staff, although limited English speaking except one, are at the top of Japanese hospitality, friendliness and ready to assist with any question you may have.
Breakfast is the most exhaustive you can imagine. Western, Japanese or a la carte.
The location is stunning with lake views and the most fantastic road leading to the hotel grounds with cherry blossoms abound. You do need to factor in that Japanese come from far away to drive under the lush cherry blossoms. The villas are far enough on the hillside so it does not bother you but it may make getting to the hotel somewhat cumbersome.
If you want to have a few days holiday the way the Japanese do it, come here to relax.
