Rising to prominence under feudal rule in the 16th century, the city of Nagahama sits in the northeast Shiga Prefecture, on the shores of Lake Biwa. In this historic castle town once known for its production of firearms, today the castle operates as a museum to local history, nestled in the city's only park. Meanwhile, the central square buzzes with galleries and ateliers, showcasing the thriving art scene and renowned glasswork. Try your hand at glass-blowing, then visit one of many museums exhibiting unusual collections of traditional arts and culture. Be sure to check the city's festival schedule while on your Nagahama holiday: the bonsai tree exhibition running January to March is especially enchanting, with trees over 400 years old housed in quaint Japanese decor. Find what you're looking for from your Nagahama holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Japan driving holiday planning app.
