Hozu-gawa River Boat Ride
Flowing 16km between the mountains leading to Arashiyama, Kyoto's premiere spot for scenic beauty, and Kameoka, the Hozugawa River was once an important waterway used for transporting lumber to the capital. Today, visitors can enjoy a two-hour boat ride through nature. With 3-5 skilled boatsmen steering, you can enjoy gazing out at cherry blossoms in the spring, fresh green foliage in the summer, the colored leaves of autumn, and the massive boulders and fantastic rock formations. Experience the deep pools, the rapids, and all the thrills of an ever changing mountain river.
