The Biwako Beer Boat sets sail starting from June 20 as part of a summer-only cruise plan at Lake Biwa.
You’ll get to experience the full atmosphere of a beer garden while on the water while enjoying the cool breeze of the evening air. Dine on finger food while chugging all-you-can-drink beer or order an all-you-can-eat buffet for ¥5,000 as you gaze at the gorgeous sight of Lake Biwa and the night sky. There’s also all-you-can-drink Yebisu Beer.
The name of the cruiser you’ll ride is Megumi. She’ll be initially be anchored at Otsu Port and open for business at 5:30pm. There will then be two 45-minute cruising sessions which run from 6:30pm-7:15pm and again at 7:30pm-8:15pm after which she will close for the night. You can board while ever the boat is parked at Otsu Port.
What’s better is that you don’t have to make a reservation either, just turn up. Board Megumi during the hot summer and bask in the refreshing lake air at Lake Biwa!
