The 360-degree glass cabin provides a stunning panoramic view of Lake Biwa, Kyoto and even the Osaka cityscape.❤️❤️‍🔥 #summervacation#hikingtrails

Looking for a place to relax and unwind? Head on to Biwako Valley! Relax and enjoying the breathtaking view on top of the mountain while eating ice cream or drinking coffee it is a perfect place. Nature view at it's best. We went there in July. It was a beautiful sunny and cloudy day. One of the best place that I have ever visited. #givethanks
