Lake Biwa Fieldwork 

Fieldwork to learn about the history and current status of water conservation around Lake Biwa

Lake Biwa is known as the largest lake in Japan. Along with the progress of urbanization and industrialization and changes in the social structure, the relationship between people, Lake Biwa and the surrounding environment have changed.

Let's visit Lake Biwa to conduct a field survey and learn about the relationship between regional development, water resources and environmental conservation! (As we expect foreign students to participate, we plan to use English as the main language.)
