We loved the experience. Our guide was great even though we could only communicate with simple words and gestures. His singing went very well with the tranquil surroundings - it was as if we were brought to another world. Highly recommended!

This boat trip is super recommendable. You get very beautiful views of the river. The driver sings a relaxing song for you. Very relaxing experience.

Enjoy the nature at his purest...clear water where you can admire ayu or sweet fish, an endemic fish of Japan. Let's get inspired by the folkloric song of the sailor man while admiring the cliff.

We took a boat in the morning around 11am, and the weather was really nice but a little bit chilly. We could totally forget the noisy and annoying life in Tokyo thanks to the wonderful view and the charming guide!
