Shiga tours & activities, fun things to do in Shiga. | VELTRA
Shiga is dominated by Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan, which is surrounded by the peaks of Mt. Ibuki, the Suzuka Mountain Range, Mt. Hira and Mt. Hiei. Make sure you book a visit to the dramatic Enryakuji Temple at Mt. Hiei, designated as a World Cultural Heritage Site. Hikone Castle is another lovely sight, especially when lit up after dark during special festivals. A short train ride from Kyoto, adventurous travelers will love exploring Lake Biwa by canoe or kayak.
