Nagahama is a port city located on the Northeast corner of Lake Biwa. Within the city, there is an abundance of specialty shops and attractions. From the famous glass-making shop Kurokabe to the eclectic Kaiyodo Figure Museum to the beautiful Nagahama Castle, there’s something for everyone.
We visited the Nagahama Castle Historical Museum, which was full of ancient texts and history.
