When I was watching people’s blog pictures, I decided to post this photo.
This is a view from Yawata mountain in Shiga prefecture.
I wasn’t expecting to see a view like this at the top of the ropeway, so I was happy.
Shiga has the biggest lake in Japan, called Biwako.
At the foot of the ropeway is Himure village.
In that village are Taneya and Club Harie: a Japanese sweets shop and a western style sweets shop.
Club Harie’s baumkuchen is famous and very delicious.
There is also a nice cafe in a red brick building where you can eat those cakes.
