It was the Omimaiko fireworks at the weekend, Lake Biwa, Shiga. Love the summer.

Nagahama, raw beef, craft beer and architecture

July 14, 2016

Some pics from a private tour visiting Nagahama situated on the south side of Lake Biwa, not far from the castle town of Hikone (not to be mistaken for Hakone!).  For me, I associate Nagahama with some excellent craft beer, IPA in particular.  There is also a nice historical area with atmospheric old Edo and Meiji era buildings. It’s off the beaten track in regards to foreign visitors, but definitely worth stopping by if you’re in the area and want to drink some yummy beer with Omi-gyu sashimi beef as a side dish!

Just as the snow begins and we dig in for winter we can say sayonara to the glorious days of autumn. See you next year!
