We were put in a boat with audio in Chinese only. The audio was useless for us and disturbed the calm nature of the gorge. It would be better to have a silent tour. I feel my 1080 yen was a waste. I could just...More

A short cruise of 30 mins in the river valley. The water is so clear and the valley is peaceful. I'm sure it would be a nice activity in Summer. You can feel the cool and refreshing air around the valley.

It's pleasant if short and rather uneventful. If I understood Japanese it might have been more interesting. To be honest the best views are from the bridge above and the tourist cafe further along the road.
