  • Quite a good travel spot in Kusatsu. You can take a bus from the Kusatsu Station. The museum is mostly about the history of the areas around Biwako, and there is even a quite large aquarium at the end. If you have a family this place is definitely worth it for a few hours' quality time, the only downsides that I can possibly think of being kind of isolated with no other tourist site nearby and rather weak foreign language support.

  • Very nice!
