Japanese-style boat riding experience in Ayase river

We have a boat riding experience, where we sail a Japanese-style boat through the Ayase river, that flows by pine trees which designated national spot as the scence of The Narrow Road to the Deep North(Oku no hosomichi). The boat ride is about 40 minutes, and you can choose from two different typs of boats to ride in.
The "Hyakutai" style with oars(capacity:8 people), or the "Sokamatsubara" that has an engine(capacity:10people).

The reception will be carried out as a first come first serve basis on the same day, and will end as soon as the boats reach capacity.
Please note that due to safety, boat rides will be cancel during days with rainy weather and strong winds.
