Mount Okujima (425m), porphyritic granodiorite and rhyolitic welded tuff protruding through the flat fluvial sediments of the eastern plain. The rocky lakeshore provides a distinctive habitat for some of the endemic species living in the lake, including the giant Biwa catfish. (Photograph taken from a helicopter, 12th May 2010.)
