Kusatsu is located in the Southeast of Shiga Prefecture, which is home to Japan's largest lake - Lake Biwa.

This town has a long history and rich culture due to its status as a post station at the crossroads of the Tokaido and Nakasendo - two of the five main travel routes during the Edo period.

Thanks to our hotel's convenient location - about a 3-minute walk from JR Kusatsu Station, which is 20 minutes by train from Kyoto Station - we accommodate many business travelers and serve as a hub for sightseeing in Kyoto, the capital of Japanese culture.

Relax in the picturesque surroundings of Kusatsu Estopia Hotel, while enjoying a sky banquet with a panoramic view of the expansive Lake Biwa. On the opposite shore of the lake you can even catch a glimpse of the Hiei and Hira Mountains as you dine.
