You cannot appreciate it from the guidebook alone but you can appreciate it by bike.
Marriott’s exclusive guide program proposes a new journey around Japan.
● A two-day cycling tour to experience Lake Biwa, Japan’s largest freshwater lake
Lake Biwa boasts the largest catchment area in Japan and is the third oldest lake in the world, dating to approximately five million years. The waterfront is a treasure trove of nature as well as an area where traditional Japanese culture, townscapes, and customs have been retained. You can visit the many scenic landscapes, streets, and famous temples of the elegant Omi or enjoy a cycling tour to experience the area’s rich nature, history and culture.
