1) Morning Course
We can visit representative old temples (Keisoku-ji and Shakudo-ji), ruins and related treasure houses of the land of MAHOROBA (an Ideal place filled with happiness). We can also appreciate breathtaking autumnal beauty of the old mountainous temple in late fall.
2) Afternoon Course
We can visit one of the most famous old battlefields, Mt. Shizugatake in the midst of the age of Provincial Wars (1583). We climb up to the summit too by a lift, from where we can see the fantastic vista of both Lake Biwa and Lake Yogo.
