Yanagawa River Boat, Yanagawa

Boat Tour · Tour
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. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Yanagawa fast, fun, and easy.
