  • Chikubushima Cruise (Imazu Port)

    Chikubushima, widely known as one of the most powerful spots for spiritual energy on Lake Biwa, is a small uninhabited island with temple and shrine complex on top of a steep hill. With an area of 0.054 square miles (0.14 k㎡) , at almost equal distance from Imazu Port and Nagahama Port (cruise schedules are subject to change by season or day of the week).

    The trees that cover the island (mainly conifers) are beautiful throughout the seasons. There are lots to see, including the Hogon-ji Karamon Gate and the main hall of Tsukubusuma Shrine, both of which are national treasures, as well as Hogon-ji’s Funa Corridor, an important cultural property. Recently, it has been used as a location for television and film productions, and in addition to the fact that it is known as a place of mystical energy with a mysterious atmosphere, many visitors come to claim their own share of that energy. The benzaiten goddess happiness dolls and kawarake-nage earthenware tile throwing (to ward off evil) are also popular.
