The cruise down Oboke Gorge is probably the most boring I have ever been on. Definitely not worth the time or money.More

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

We had a good time on this 30 min cruise on the Yoshinogawa river. It gave us an opportunity to discover the gorge from the bottom, since the road only offer some glimpses from above. Water is incredibly clear. We saw several birds and 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.
