  • Midera station on the Keihan way was the outlet of the Lake Biwa Canal. Lake Biwa Canal and say during the Meiji era was used until around the Higashiyama Villa garden irrigation from Kyoto's drinking water, irrigation and hydro-electric power. Kyoto activation was driving force, it is so to speak.

  • This Canal is a canal in the Biwa aqueduct system in Kyoto. The real ship to pass here. Here is very good for viewing sakura in spring. The scenery is very beautiful. Around it there are also rail place the ship was taken by train to ascend to a higher place. The location was rather far from the bus stop, but still allows for the road.
