THE BIWAKO TERRACE is one of the best places to travel in Otsu-shi, Shiga Prefecture, Japan. Here're guides for attractions, hours, access, map, spots nearby, and photos of THE BIWAKO TERRACE posted by Japanese travelers in the know.


Ride a ropeway from the foot of the mountain, you can go there like a garden of heaven. Tiled pool of a café and yellow lemonade are stylish. But the nature blue colors of Lake Biwa and the sky are most wonderful.◎Weekends are very crowded, so weekday mornings are better. The menus of the café are only light meal, so use other restaurants in you want to eat your fill.

I went THE BIWAKO TERRACE in autumn, and enjoyed autumn colored leaves at the same time! We can go up by a rope way, and the temperature drops at the top, so you need something to put on.

Thanks to the invisible fence (blue watered area), there're nothing to shut out the sight, we can enjoy clear view. Three years has passed since it opened. the new areas are building one after another. I can't take my eyes off!


The Whole View Of Lake Biwa

If the weather is perfect, you can see the world wrapped in blue! It was a little cloudy on this day, but I could see the beautiful reflections of clouds on the water surface. Then, the sky became pale pink because of the evening glow, which was very gorgeous scenery.◎Biwako Terrace opens during the green season of Lake Biwa Valley, from April to November. It's used as a sky resort in winter, so they're closed.
