This is a tour visiting Chikubu Island, a sacred power island on Lake Biwa, and temples and shrines on the island. Viewing Lake Biwa from the island is exceptionally beautiful. The program is side trip from Nagoya. But if you visit from Kyoto or Osaka, feel free ask ask us by clicking "Inquire"
The shrine on the island is designated as National Treasure, along with some parts of the temple.
You can feel a sense of adventure on your way to the shrine; taking a boat, landing on the island, and walking along a mountain road. Try “kawarake-nage” when you reach the shrine. First write your wish on a clay pot called “kawarake,” then throw it at the shrine gate (300 yen per “kawarake”). Go through the shrine gate and your wish will come true.
The beautiful sunset from this island is selected as Japan’s Best Hundred Sunset.

Next, you will visit the beautiful Nagahama Castle. Fifth floor of the castle tower is an observatory where you can see Lake Biwa below your eyes. Enjoy the view of biggest lake in Japan.
After enjoying the castle, take a stroll in Kurokabe (black wall) Square, the castle town of Nagahama Castle. Kurokabe Square has a retro-modern atmosphere retaining some remnants of Meiji era. Originally the area prospered as a temple town of Daitsu Temple and post station of Hokkoku route, and a bank was built in 1900. After that the current black-themed streetscape developed, turning the town into a busy area with many tourists and locals in the weekends.
Here, there is something for everyone to enjoy, such as restaurants serving local specialties and fancy cafes. Kurokabe Square offers various activities (prior booking required), from making music box (from 1,100 yen) to action figure (from 1,100 yen).
At Kurokabe Glass Shop, you can purchase glass craftworks. The wooden architecture of the shop was originally built in 1900 as a bank, and was refurbished in 1989.

Continue on the shopping promenade along Nagahama Otemon Street.
There are souvenir shops, restaurants and many more. Also at this shopping promenade is Kaiyodo Figure Museum, which action figure lovers will drool with envy. See the Kaiyodo website for more information: http://kaiyodo.co.jp/.
