Lake Biwa, Japan's largest lake, is a difficult 5-6 km walk away from Himure Hachimangu. This makes the need for a bus or taxi important and can be a little inconvenient but worth it for the amazing scenery you can see at Chalet Mizugahama.
If it's not too cold, I recommend the outdoor terrace seats. From the terrace you can look over Lake Biwa, you can enjoy your drinks while taking in the majestic view.
