Chikubu jima is an uninhabited island located in Lake Biwa. In such a small island, there're one of the national treasures, important cultural assets and even one of the only thee images of Benzaiten in Japan. Because of its geographical condition and the sacred sight, they say the whole of the island has a spiritual power to give visitors divine grace.

Chikubu jima Shrine has a torii gate facing to Lake Biwa. Visitors write their wishes on kawara (tiles) and throw them to go under the torii. If you succeed it, your wish may come true! Let's challenge 'Kawara Nage'!

An attractive Lake Biwa cruise to 'God's Island' Chikubu! Fascinated by the vast view like the sea, and the sight just before arrival is superb!
