This is a beautiful European-style resort hotel facing Lake Biwa. I got a nice view of the lake from my room on the third floor. They have Japanese, Western, and Chinese restaurants.

Nice view of Lake Biwa from the room with good leisure facilities

I recommend this resort hotel with a planetarium, tennis courts, indoor swimming pool and gym. Asides from the great view of the lake from your room, you can enjoy these leisure facilities for free if you're a hotel guest.

An inn where you can relax while viewing Lake Biwa

I stayed at this hotel when I visited Shiga and I really recommend it. There's an open-air bath in the terrace of a room and you can have a good view of Lake Biwa while taking a bath.

It's more an inn than a hotel...

There are many hotels around Lake Biwa, but the executive room of this inn is really nice. They have an open-air bath and since the inn is standing on the hill, you can have a good view of the lake.

It's quiet.

It's convenient when you go sightseeing in the northern part of Lake Biwa. The area was quiet and I recommend taking a walk along the lake in the morning.

An inn for adults

This is an inn in Ogoto Onsen. I recommend this inn as it's quiet and you can really relax. The dinner was great but I especially liked breakfast. It was like Japanese Kaiseki.
