It cost ¥1,300 yen per person for a ride. The view was ok at the beginning but at the end of the river, some modern buildings can be seen at both side. Also there were a lot of trash on the river and no flowers on the both side of the river. I think they should do more to beautify the river so that tourists can enjoy the boat ride more.

I came across this recommendation from Japan tourism board because I wanted to find some nice places to visit near Narita while pending on my return flight. Sawara is a very nice place with a little canal that housed the traditional japanese houses during Edo period (1603-1867). It is a transport hub for the rice to the capital in the olden days. From JR Narita station to Sawara station (JPY480) is a 35 minute ride (You can grab a brochure at the tourist info center at JR Narita Station only available in Japanese but with simple picture as a guide). From the exit of the Sawara station, walk straight, turn to the left when you see the Chiba Bank, walk to the end until a T-junction (you will see the post office on the way), turn to left walk all the way you will reach the canal. Approx. 15 min walk from the Sawara station. Just grab a Sawara bento lunch box on your way back to the station after a nice serene walk.
