Greeny May is the best season in Kyoto. Just right after a nice cherry blossom blooming and just before the rainy season (so-called Tsuyu) followed by horribly hot and humid summer. Such great weather drove us to organize a group BBQ party at the lake-side of northern part of Biwa-lake. We totally enjoyed good beach, good foods and good drinks with an occasional reggae live music next to us. This is one of the best ways to spend a calm day by escaping super busy Kyoto.
