Lake Biwa is the largest lake in Japan in terms of area size and water volume, and it takes up about 1/6 of Shiga Prefecture. It's a precious source of water for Kyoto and Osaka. As it has been an independent water source for a long time, there are many endemic species that only live in the ecosystem of Lake Biwa.
