What to Expect

Tohoku's second largest river, The Abukuma river, has been used for a long period of time to transport goods In the olden days, starting with transporting the annual rice tax, once Japan entered the Meiji era, it started transporting wooden and stone materials such as firewood, this continued until the Shouwa era The ones who are keeping the story of this alive are Abukuma Line Funakudari company.
During this activity, you will ride a boat on the Abukuma River. While enjoying the natural scenery, a performer from Marumori's Tabi Daiko taiko drumming group will perform a song for you. Then they will teach you how to beat the traditional taiko drum, and teach you a simple song. Then you will get to perform the song. If you want, we will record you on your phone/camera so you can have a memory to take home with you.
There will also be an introduction to some interesting spots along the river.

Stop At:

• Abukuma River, Marumori-machi, Igu-gun 981-2171 Miyagi Prefecture
