“Lake Glass Museum” is open at Maibara Cycle Station!

“Sea glass” is physically and chemically weathered glass found on beaches along bodies of salt water.

The similar glass is found on beaches around Lake Biwa as well, as a kind of “Beach glass”. We call it “Lake glass”, which is not known so well though.

From March 10th, the “Lake Glass Museum” that displays many pieces of lake glass is open.

If you pick a lake glass during your “Biwaichi” bike trip and bring it back here, we’re glad to let it be on display in the museum.
Also, you can get one from the display in exchange for yours, if you find your favorite one there.
(You can get only one piece.)

We wish this project lead you to the beach to try to find a lake glass, that would be one of exciting opportunities on your way, right?
Touch/see things in nature, even though/because they are artificial things, feel something through it, then let’s think about the lake, our environment, and our planet.

Thank you.
