  • I think in the Lake Biwa Canal Museum, Zoo and Okazaki area's luxurious walks. It is to feel the leaves of cherry blossom and noisy, but sunny autumn day while walking toward the Higashiyama and really enjoy the atmosphere of the ancient city.

  • The Canal was made in the Meiji era. Stand came in water distribution, power and various roles. Energy in Kyoto is likely contributed to the modernization of trains and factories. As a logistics and incline remain traces of water. This hydrophobic, Heian Jingu Shrine, serves as water to each garden.

  • Also visited the Canal of philosopher's walk in a long time, but many times you visit. Fewer tourists, or one of the staff. Cherry blossoms and leaves are nice, green in the summer time is also good.
