Lake Biwa is Japan's largest lake: 100m deep, 64km long, and with a shoreline of 235km. It's also one of the oldest freshwater lakes in the world, formed more than 4 million years ago.
“Thanks to its proximity to Kyoto, Lake Biwa appears in many of Hiroshige's woodblock prints. Even now the lake is a soothing escape from the big city.”
