Located in Shiga Prefecture on the southeastern shore of Lake Biwa, this botanical garden specialized in aquatic plants and is especially renowned for its lotus displays. Mizu-no-Mori means “water forest” and it’s easy to see why this treasure trove of plants invokes curiosity and glee from visitors.
