Matsue retains a canal system and townscape with 400-year-old character, and this 50-minute boat tour is the quintessential way to see them. The boatmen will tell you about the local history and culture while you enjoy the natural scenery that...more
This sightseeing boat ride around Matsue is definitely one of a kind. The boat is only 8 meters long and 2 meters wide. You sit on the bottom of the boat and when going under very low bridges, the roof lowers. And it is low....More
A well justified cruise, much more fun than I imagine before embarkation.
We join at the pier adjoining to Matsue Castle. In the first 20 minutes, we cruise around the nice and beautiful greenery, with many traditional Japanese houses; offering you a different perspective to...More

Sadly enough the comment is a recorded message of a woman's voice and your boatsman decides whether or not he'd shut up and roll the tape, but the ride is great. You even have to bend down to avoid the real low bridges of this...More
Matsue Horikawa Pleasure Boat ride right in front of the castle was a great experience even in Winter as there was a comfortable Kotatsu on the boat. It was very funny that it could even pass through super narrow bridges by lowering the ceiling.
