The Striking Beauty of Cherry Blossoms
On the northern shore of Lake Biwa lies Kaizu Osaki, a beautiful spot to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom. The cherry blossom trees here are over 50 years old and number about 600, stretched out along four kilometers of beautiful scenery. There is a lake cruiser vistors can ride to get a view of the cherry blossoms from out on the lake as well. Even if you can't visit during cherry blossom season, the greenery and beauty of the lake are well worth a visit.
