CWJ-LAKE BIWA04 Metasequoia Tree‐lined Road (Biwaichi additional route)

A beautiful tree-shaped metasequoia with a height of about 30 m lasts for about 2 km and makes you feel even the atmosphere of a foreign country.

After Kaizu Osaki in the Around Route of Northern Lake, this is an additional route for riding on a Metasequoia Tree‐lined Road from Kaizu intersection on the national road 161 towards Makino Highlands.
A scenic view of a tasteful village on the way, a metasequoia to show various faces every season, a road to become a picture of a row of trees, a cafe with a good atmosphere, etc. A little way off the road.
One of the best “Cyclist Welcome” hotel around Lake Biwa, Imazu Sun Bridge Hotel must be a good place for staying after enjoying this route.

It is safe to run on a wider autoverwalk after joining National Route 161.

As you head towards Makino Highlands, the houses with splendid tile roofs unique to the snowy country line up.

Burning autumn leaves Metasequoia trees.

In the winter Metasequoia trees, its beautiful tree shape stands out.

As soon as you cross the trees, you can hunt fruits at Makino Pickland on your left, as well as a gelato shop and a restaurant.

Just ahead, there is also a small cozy cafe, koti cafe.
