Takashima in Shiga Prefecture

Exploring a country town with a huge Gulliver statue

Located on the North-Western side of Shiga Prefecture, Takashima has beautiful rural and lake-side scenery. Right across from the JR Station is a huge statue of Gulliver.  Apparently there is a Gulliver theme park for children somewhere near the hills. Whatever the reason, a Gulliver statue in the middle of a Japanese country town seems delightfully eccentric to me. I explored the town and surrounding area by bicycle early in autumn, and there was plenty to see. I love the countryside in Japan!
