OTSU, Japan, Mar. 2, 2017 /Kyodo JBN-AsiaNet/ —

The Biwako Visitors Bureau, located in Shiga Prefecture, which forms part of the Kansai region in the western part of Japan’s main island, has released a video titled “Rainbow-Colored, Beautiful SHIGA: Shiga – Biwako.” (Biwako or Lake Biwa is the largest freshwater lake in Japan.)

Various locations from around Shiga have been put together in this video to depict a day full of color. Many famous spots appear in the video, ranging from the sight of Shirahige Shrine painted red by the setting sun to the blanket of green lotus leaves in Kohoku Mizudori Park. The video shows these wonderfully picturesque Shiga locations in vivid, rainbow colors.

The music in the video includes samples taken from the waves of Lake Biwa and was produced by world-renowned composer Marihiko Hara.
