L’Hotel Du Lac

L’Hotel Du Lac


An auberge hotel located in the heart of the natural beauty of Okubiwako (deep lake) area of Nagahama. The facility is located on the peninsula, facing a street with a row of cherry trees that has been selected as one of Japan’s 100 Best Cherry Blossom Spots. It houses 15 rooms, each of which offers a luxurious and spacious ambiance. Guests can enjoy the stunning views of Lake Biwa and the “sacred island” of Chikubushima.

At the restaurant, SOWER, which offers “KOHOKU cuisine,” the menu interprets the local flavors of “wind and soil” with dishes made from fresh, seasonal ingredients from the region. The executive chef, Coleman Griffin, who has a background as a sous chef at the two-star restaurant INUA in Tokyo—a venue famed as one of the most difficult reservations to secure globally and originating from Denmark’s renowned restaurant noma—brings his expertise to the table, carefully preparing each dish.
