Along the parkway, there is not only an observation space, from which the beautiful scenery can be enjoyed, but also leisure facilities, such as an amusement park where families can have a enjoyable time! The parkway is a leisure area equipped with a large parking lot convenient for strolling the surrounding area. The parkway’s greatest charm is the foliage season in autumn. The blazing red leaves that appear as autumn deepens cannot be expressed in words. The sunlight through the autumn leaves and the sunset produce a road beautifully.
We also recommend stretching your legs a bit and taking in the view of Lake Biwa from Mt. Hiei Enryakuji Temple in Lake Biwa Quasi-National Park. ※Click here for the highlights of Lake Biwa Quasi-National Park
