Lake Biwako Cruising with Michigan Cruiser

We stopped by South of Shiga Prefecture in a place called Hamaotsu, Otsu City as we had our fun drive, where the famous Lake Biwa also known in whole Japan as the mother of all lakes.


cloudy skies as we approach the area

Weather was not on our side,we went early morning to avoid the rain in the late afternoon according to the forecast but still we we’re caught by noon! Rain started to pour. Since we arrived, we decided to ride the Michigan Cruiser And we didn’t regret it! It was FUN!!

The Michigan Cruiser, an american themed sightseeing pleasure boat is offering a cruising service around the southern part of the lake.

















tourists flocked, locals and foreigners alike




At the pleasure boat, a band from Australia performed for the guests throughout the trip. We had a grand time with the performers.
