 Yanagawa "Kawakudari" (literally means boat tour going downstream) is a major attraction of Yanagawa city. You can experience about one-hour punt tour of the waterways in Yanagawa ramified across the city including the old castle's moat. Okay, let’s get on board! 

A boat tour is waiting for you!

The boat leaves from the punting station slowly. Our tour starts from 'Shogetsu' punting station, located near Yanagawa railway station. Now, it is the beginning of our short boat tour for about 4.5km in distance.

 The boat is operated by professional boatman called 'Sendo' in Japanese. The wide and narrow waterways' networks are expanding ahead of you and it offers a unique landscape from the boat which is totally different from the landscape in our daily life.

 On the way to the ending point, a kind of shop will welcome you! You can buy soft drinks, ice cream, light snacks, and even beer or Japanese sake if you hope, and enjoy eating and drinking on the boat.  

It is about 70 minutes' short ride on the boat, but I assure that it will birng you a pleasant & memorable day.  

Why don’t you experience this fantastic boat tour and feel the rustic atmosphere of Japan?

Yoshihara was excellent. Our experience was very different from our previous tours we (ship tours) we took while we were in Japan, especially our lunch where we steamed our food from the natural "onsen" steam around the city. Tours were excellent and his guide fees were very reasonable. Yoshi was very flexible and we were able to change our itinerary as we went along.

Thoroughly enjoed our tour "one on one" with Yoshiharusan. By the time we made it to Fukuoka we had seen more than enough temples and shrines so were thankful Yoshiharusan was able to suggest alternatives. Apart from the sites we visited, it was enjoyable being able to chat with a local about the way of life in Japan and to have some of our questions answered. Do not hesitate to recommend Yoshihar...
