  •  I visited – live in freshwater lake is rare in the world. There is, there are good old Japan. Islanders to greet "good morning" and always pleasant reply. Because the island is not only the narrow alleys, no car is one. No no noise of everyday experiences in the city.  It was a very relaxing time. It is recommended to get maps and brochures – Community Center before tourism. Staff friendly and introduce you to the sights. We see, thanks for the advice, summon the could see the cherry blossom tunnel. Forget the flowing on to the beauty of the cherry tree seen under clear skies. Ken pile (see Kageyama-elevation: 210 m) is a fun climbing course. Sneakers is sufficient even though climbing Mountain.  Along the way there, Bunting, enjoying seeing cherry blossom Plaza, Vantage square Observatory. Lunch is received a fisherman's wife who made our lunch at the fisheries Center.  "Comfort food" and was very delicious. From horikiri – fishing until there are scheduled flights. Tickets bought in vending machines on Board (one way 500 yen). If car park – town of kurushima for parking, arrive in a 5-minute walk from horikiri port.

  • It is a lake in Japan only one inhabited island. You can walk is approximately 2 kms of shore only. In a relaxed atmosphere, enjoy hanging out and walking down the alley behind.

Here is also the Lake's largest island. Biggest and best, around 6. about 8 km is.... Elementary school, but pupils are 10 Hey, teacher of many people. And yet few people from the Mainland (island of Kosai and the eastern side of this call) daily ship (private) goes by the island... here including the private than the population, the number of ships there. Data surprised many and discussed one after the other, I was studying. Map Island primary school building in writing, a copy of the Handbook, selling some 10 yen. Immediately bought, in the reference.
