Biwako Cruise


The Michigan is Lake Biwa's most famous cruise boat. Relax and watch the spectacular scenery of Lake Biwa as it goes by,
or enjoy a meal at one of the restaurants or a live music performance.

There are three Michigan Cruises to choose from, with different options for your enjoyment.

The Michigan is a wonderful paddle boat which cruises around the south part of Lake Biwa.

Once on board, you can enjoy great music and events, as well as a variety of meals from light snacks to buffet and course meals. The magnificent 360-degree panoramic view from the Michigan sky deck (top floor) will take your breath away. There are three Michigan cruise courses: The Michigan 80 is an 80-minute daytime cruise where you can enjoy meals and events on board as well as the magnificent Lake Biwa scenery. The Michigan 60 is a 60-minute evening cruise for an easy way to see the lake, and the Michigan Night Cruise is a chance to experience the beauty of the lake in the evening and at night, along with a meal and onboard events.

Passengers can also come on board at Niono-hama Sightseeing Port and Yanagasaki Lakeside Park Port. We look forward to seeing you.
