Yanagawa River Boat, Yanagawa

4.0
See scenes of the old town from the canal that runs through it on Yanagawa River Boat. The traditional wooden boats, steered with a pole by a boatman at the back of the vessel, float slowly around the canal system of the historic castle town. Along the way, you'll take in sights of the trees, traditional Japanese storehouse architecture, and daily life in the town. Watch how the steerers carefully guide the boats and their handful of passengers, with the peaceful, ambling tours lasting around 1 hour and 10 minutes.

  • I don't know which shipping company it was, but it was a ship to take off my shoes. I think that it is different depending on the company because there were people who sat down as shoes, too. It is very quiet and only the voice of the boatman sounds. I was able to enjoy the town for a small hour.

  • One of the sightseeing sightseeing in Mizusato Yanagikawa is going down the river around the moat. A donko ship slowly travels through the white-walled castle town with a boat's axe. Listen to the fun stories and songs of the boat' head, and the townscape and autumn leaves seen from the surface of the water are also elegant. Pass under the branches and bridges of a low tree. The low bridge passes while keeping the body to sleep. It might be a little thrilling. Finally, we went down the river for about an hour around the garden of Ohana.
