Hello from KLA Biwako School
We are Kyoshin Language Academy Biwako School.
We would like to introduce our school regularly from now on through this blog.
This is our first post and we are going to introduce around school and school building.
＜Shiga Prefecture where our school is located＞
Shiga Prefecture is famous for “Biwako” which is the largest lake in Japan. It’s where our school name came from. You can enjoy BBQ and camping by the lakeside, and also lake activities are available.
There is a great mountain view from season to season around the lake from school.
You can experience nature and history as of Shiga Prefecture has quite a few temples, shrines and castles nationwide.
It’s easy to access to major cities. 17 mins to Kyoto and 53 mins to Osaka by train from the closest station to the school.
Our school is located in 5 minutes on foot from JR Seta station.
There are shopping centers, grocery shops, convenience stores, banks, councils and doctors, so it’s convenient for everyday life.
There is a long row of cherry blossom trees along the riverside and it’s a breathtaking view when they are in full bloom.
Students can live a convenient life and also quiet surroundings that help them to focus on study with filled in nature.
