Yakatabune Shiki

This elegantly designed luxury yakatabune (“houseboat”) serves seasonal food carefully overseen by a long-standing Japanese inn, enjoyed in a space that’s fully heated in winter and cooled in summer, while sailing the waters of Lake Biwa. The catamaran-type construction significantly reduces the effects of the waves, allowing a comfortable voyage. You can also take to the deck and enjoy a 360 panorama of the sights of Lake Biwa.
