Lake Biwa Sailing - More relaxing afternoon

When you tire from visiting the seemingly endless array of temples in Kyoto, this sailing adventure is a refreshingly promising choice for breaking away from the hustle and bustle of the city. By just  getting on the subway at Kyoto City Hall (Kyoto Shiyakusho-mae) Station, you will get to Biwako Hamaotsu Station, where our yacht harbor is right in front of you. With the extended 5 hours, you will have a chance to learn in greater detail about how to sail the boat with the captain, and BBQ after sailing can be enjoyed.
