Here are some English maps of Shiga. Most of them are Google Maps which I created with English placemarks. For the Google Maps, click on the "View Larger Map" link below the map. Then you can see a list of English placemarks in the left column.
These maps are also included in the "About" pages of Shiga's cities and towns (see Municipalities box at page bottom).
Shiga Prefecture Maps
Location of Shiga Prefecture. Almost at the center of the archipelago, Shiga is easy to find on a map of Japan with Lake Biwa (Japan's largest lake) looking like a belly button.
Google Map of Shiga Prefecture. Placemarks in English. Many are illustrated. Click on the "View Larger Map" link below the map to see a list of placemarks. This map mainly shows train stations.
