My daughter said she wants to see roses so we drove to the Biwako Otsukan English Garden. Kyoto is very close to Otsu city, and it was just 30 min drive to there. I’ve been living in Kyoto for 10 years and when I think about enjoying a car drive near Kyoto, my first choice is driving along the Biwa Lake. This Rose Garden is right by the lake. The scenery by the lake is bright, open and expansive, which is very different from Kyoto city center and what I miss… Nice to live by the huge lake, it is like a Harbor Town and there is no Tsunami.
