It was a pleasant and relaxing boat ride down the river. Despite not able to understand the boatman's introduction of the scenery along the river. We had truly enjoy the scenery.

Pretty. Only 30 min or so. Good experience. Salted fish cooking at end. Walked to Edo Wonderland but may need to ask vendors for directions as it is obscure.

The scenary of the river is breath taking. The boat rider is very enthustic although we don't know what he is talking. We have 5 boats on the day even during weekdays. It is the peak season for red leaves. I recommend to do a reservation online before going. We also tried the sea salt fish at the arrival point. It is really delicious. The boat ride is a must do thing in Kinugawa.

Rowing along the white water river,viewing the natural. You can take the first ride at 0900 and request for bus service to Edo Wonderland rather than back to Kinugawa Onsen station. Sitting in-front could get wet but can easily asked the rower to help take photo of you.

for 2500 yen, you can enjoy the river sights and see some interesting landmarks. The boats are safe and the boat liders can be quite funny. If it rains they handle plastic raincoats to every passenger. At the end you can buy a group picture by 1000 yen. at the end point, several bus drivers will take the passengers back to kinugawa station.
