Lake Biwa

I had a one night trip to Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan to attend academic conferences.


I got on the Shinkansen (Bullet Train) bound for Shin-Osaka at Hakata Station.






Most of fields are filled with water, and rice seedlings are going to be planted.


Fukuyama castle re-builded after destruction by fire at the Warld War II could be seen through the window of Shinkansen.


It took about five hours to get to Lake Biwa.
The lake is so large and the farther shore is impossible to see unless the air is very clear.








In the morning I took a walk along the shore.  Hypericum patulum flowers showed vivid yellow color.

On my way home, I stopped at Kyoto station, which is a very contemporary architecture in the old Japanese capitol with so many old temples and Kyoto Imperial Palace.

This week we are visiting gardens in Shinsyu Highland, which is situated northwest of  Mt.Fuji.
