Located between the mountains and the shore of Japanís largest lake, Lake Biwa, the Biwako Hotel boasts a bold exterior design with gentle curves, designed by Cťsar Pelli. This modern resort hotel welcomes guests as a hotel representing Japan, based on a tradition of high quality hospitality fostered over many decades as a guesthouse serving royalty.
The lobby, themed in marble with subdued colors, features an atrium with an open feeling. In this space, a different impression is created from that of the dramatic exterior, allowing visitors to feel excitement and enjoy a comfortable sense of freedom. In the morning, the hotel is brightly lit with sunlight and from light reflecting off Lake Biwa. At night, a gentle light embraces you, invoking an image of the fantastic lake.
Welcome to the Biwako Hotel. We hope you enjoy the beautiful scenery of Lake Biwa to your heartís content.
