Lake Biwa Canal Reviews
琵琶湖疎水の新緑は、とても清々しく心が洗われます。哲学の道より緑が多いくて、川幅も広く時々、船の姿が見えます。 more »The fresh green of Lake Biwa is very refreshing and washed. There is more green than the way of philosophy, and the width of the river is wide, and the appearance of the ship can be seen from time to time.
4/30に高齢の両親を連れ、大津から蹴上の下りツアーに参加しました。明るく、説明上手でハンサムなガイドさんが55分、ツアーを盛り上げてくれました。 新緑の季節、ひんやりとしたトンネルの中をいくつか通りますが、手堀りの第一トンネルの立派さに驚き、電力もなかった時代にこんな大事業をやり遂げた人たちの苦労が偲ばれました。ゴールデンウィークでしたので、普段の２倍の値段でしたが、高齢の両親がとても船旅を楽し... more »On April 30, I took my elderly parents and took a downhill tour from Otsu. A bright, descriptive and handsome guide gave us 55 minutes to liven up the tour. It passed through some cool tunnels in the fresh green season, but i was surprised at the splendidness of the first tunnel of the hand moat, and the hardship of the people who accomplished such a large business in the age when there was no power was recalled. Because it was Golden Week, it was twice the price of usual, but it became a page of a good trip thanks to the elderly parents enjoying the voyage very much, and the person in charge kindly waited for the boarding of the parents who had bad legs. If you are taking an elderly person with bad legs, be careful because there are stairs (about four steps) at the boarding station in Otsu, about four steps, and stairs from the entrance to the pump room. I think that it is likely to be able to climb if the son and the grandchild who is strong power give it. It's a great tour with a lot of historical sparse water and the enthusiasm of the people involved in protecting it.
Beautiful public walking area. Heavy people traffic during the cheery blossom season.
Quiet neighborhood, enjoy the scenaries, don't disturb the people that lives nearby.
