The Miidera has extensive grounds and a number of temples with viewpoints high above Lake Biwa and Otsu. There's a fascinating climate controlled museum where artifacts like screen paintings and statues are displayed, but many architectural and sculpted treasures are found in various sites. There are steep outdoor staircases , so be prepared for the effort and to spend at least an hour visiting. The plantings are abundant and with groves of cherry & maple trees, expect crowds at peak season.
