How is the unique way of playing on the lake? A water activity called Stand Up Paddle, or SUP for short, is a game of riding a large board and using a paddle. It’s not just fun, but you can also exercise it because you can train your torso!
Lake Biwa SUP, which starts at Matsunoura Campsite, has a course on land in advance, and there is an instructor during the tour, so you can enjoy it thoroughly. After the SUP, enjoy the holiday to the fullest on the beach!
