About Biwako Terrace
Biwako Terrace offers a sophisticated resort for adults and delivers soaring views looking out over the lake.
There are two terraces, each with their own character, atop two mountains.
Enjoy a luxurious and relaxing time in a very special setting.
Truly a “Sky Resort” with magnificent panorama
5 min ropeway gondola ride takes you to the Summit Station of Mt. Uchimi (at 1,108m above sea level). Upon alighting from the gondola, you will be greeted by the spacious terrace area “The Main”.
“The Main” houses two amazing retreat terraces. The iconic “Grand Terrace” and the best spot to see northern Lake Biwa at “North Terrace”. Our deck terrace with its surrounded water features is definitely the perfect place to relax. Lay back on chairs or stroll along the deck, enjoying Lake Biwa’s captivating blue sky and charming scenery. It’s truly a Sky Resort paradise. Do enjoy our café specialties such as sandwiches and gelatos from “Terrace Café”.
For more private indulgence, you may wish to secure a lounge sofa seat with our “Infinity Lounge” (fees applicable/walk-in booking only/ first come first served basis).
Unblocked bird’s-eye scenery surrounds our nature-inspired platform terrace
Mt. Horai (1,174 m) is the tallest mountain in Biwako Valley and offers an exceptional vantage point. Café 360 is a terrace perched at the summit. It is like a different world ensconced in clouds.
