Day 5 started out with a short ferry trip across Lake Biwa to the sacred island of Chikibujima and the shrines and temples there.
Across the lake at Nagahama I visited the Keiunkan, a villa built for Emperor Meiji to stay in. It has a lovely garden.
In front of the reconstructed Nagahama Castle was a small park.
Wandering through the Kurokabe area I glimpsed some nice color along the water.
The Ando house had a very nice, compact, town garden
