Seta River, Lake Biwa River Cruise
The Seta River is lined with beautiful natural sights.
Aside from the nearby Ishiyama-dera temple and Seta no Karahashi Bridge, there are some shrines and temples over 1,200 years old. Come back in time on the nostalgic Ichiban Maru paddleboat to see famous sights from the “Eight Views of Omi” painted by Utagawa Hiroshige, like “The Evening Glow at Sea,” or “The Autumn Moon at Ishiyama.” A guide on the boat will explain the historical background.
We invite you to come along on the Seta River Cruise for a boat ride along the Seta River you won’t soon forget.
