  • I take a picture of the temple at sunset time, was far from the evening. But the Sun is in the opposite direction to be taking good photos is difficult.

  • If you go to Shiga, Lake Biwa, please go away. Katata train station is the Tourist Office for the map, I walked. Temple Moon temple to come over here, I learned for the first time. Ukimi-Dou spread out over splendid pine trees are planted in the temple to move without bumping into a pine tree. Mido as the name implies, floating in the Lake Biwa vantage point, while watching the Biwako Ohashi bridge on your left coming up and you can go around the. It was able to relax, relieved, not confused by people. Then the painting of the ceiling of the Temple of flowers was very clean.

  • I came to the temple shrine, followed by a full moon Temple. It is nestled in the middle of this temple, Lake Biwa and environment and are connected by the bridge, such as protruding into the Lake with the unusual design. Today, across the bridge, you'll do until Mido. Mido in the tiny golden buddhas are arranged like a lot. Further around this temple and all around you can go around. Counterclockwise walk to the back of the temple, and the eaves to prevent jerk temashita posted a larger area on the Lake side. Also, looks nice Biwako Ohashi bridge from here, from the ground, watching the ukimido was good view of Lake Biwa from ukimi-Dou.

  • Wet good view,comfortable lake breeze. Available space for parking(bike,cars and motorcycles) You have to pay entrance fee(300JPY)
  • Good view of the lake and free parking close by, entrance fee 300 yen per person
  • It's okay but not worth a special trip.
  • Old Zen Buddhist Temple..This is Great place to relax. Entrance fee:300YEN.
  • Ukimido, the "floating temple" (officially Kaimonzan Mangetsu-ji temple) calms the soul. With the pavilion in the sea, the natural arrangement of the trees and garden with the pavilion are juxtaposed against the view across the waters of the lake and of the water fowl. The sounds and colours of the multilayered scene wash right into you. Highly recommended.
