Shiga Prefecture holds the largest lake in Japan, Lake Biwa. This area is also called Omi Province, as this is how it was once known, and has been a strategic point connecting to Hokuriku, Tokai, and Kinai regions. From ancient times a good many people have come and gone and during the warring states period (the 15th to 16th century), it was said that he who controls Omi commands the world.
