Beautiful Hotel in front of Lake Biwa. Room is spacious and very clean, bed is comfortable. There is a good breakfast buffet was a huge assortment of food. Not much to do at night, there are a few shops nearby but they close early.

We are pleased to offer our guests the finest service as they enjoy a relaxing More time gazing out over Lake Biwa. Guests weary from travel can relieve their hunger at one of our hotel’s seven restaurants and bars and savor meals made with carefully selected ingredients. Our first rate chefs will employ their highest skills for your dining pleasure. On the second floor is a beautiful pool and wedding chapel. One of our hotel’s greatest attractions is its seven beautiful gardens, each of which has its own theme. In these gardens guests can refresh themselves. Less
