子どもたちからたくさんのメッセージをいただきました / Messages from Children and Students







We received many messages from children of schools and organizations that visited Harie.
There is also a model of a kabata made of cardboard and clay.
They expressed their surprise and admiration with fresh words and fun drawings.

One of their teacher came all the way to our office in Takashima City to deliver messages from the children. Thank you very much.

We are very happy to hear such messages from the children.
Please come visit us again anytime.

◆ Happy New Year 2024! ◆

We wish all people in this world connected by water to live happily.
We have opened an application form for our Kabata guided tour. Please try it who decided to visit Harie.



◆ An Important Notice about our Kabata guided tour. ◆

Due to the record low water level of Lake Biwa, the amount of water gushing out of each kabata in the Harie area is extremely low.
Therefore, you may not be able to see the water gushing out of the kabata even if you come to visit.
Please understand our status. Thanks.



Dear Guests;

Our kabata tour and receptionist service will be closed until Dec.25(Monday) to Jan.8(Monday).
And We will not be able to accept phone calls during the our service outage period. Thanks.
