Kyoto's premiere spot for scenic beauty, flowing 16km between the mountains leading to Arashiyama, 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 here. 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 along the way. Experience the deep pools, rapids, and all the thrills of an ever-changing mountain river.
