View Lodge Biwa

Located right next to Lake Biwa!

In the summer, swimming in the Manohama swimming area right in front of our facility, and enjoying the terrace barbeque where you can come empty-handed are popular activities. Lighting fireworks on the beach is also allowed until 10:00 pm, allowing you to enjoy your summer experience to the fullest. Our location is great in the Spring and Fall as a base for the Biwaichi cycling route around Lake Biwa as well.

In the winter, our establishment is located 15 minutes away from the Biwako Valley Ski and Snowboard Resort, and the famous Biwako Terrace, where you can enjoy captivating scenery all year-round.

All of our meals are made by hand, and our miso soup is even prepared from koji. Our location serves locally raised Tankai chicken, Omi beef, fresh vegetables, mallard duck, and much more.

If your stomach gets full, feel free to enjoy our soft water bath, which will leave your skin and hair feeling revitalized.

The sunset glow on the lake surface and enjoying the morning sunrise by the lake is the privilege of all our guests. We hope you enjoy your time here by the lake.
