Written by Editorial department

The Kotatsu Boat Service offers passengers the experience of a winter houseboat with the comfort of a kotatsu.

This service allows passengers to enjoy drifting through the view of Geibikei, designated in 1925 as a scenic spot of natural beauty, from inside of a boat. Called the “Kotatsu Boat,” starting on December 1st this trip takes guests through the valley’s winter beauty, past about 2 kilometers of towering rock cliffs that can reach 100 meters high while the passengers stay warm under the boat’s kotatsu.

The boat operates daily on set hours, so if you arrive in the early morning hours you may be able to rent out the boat with just your friends and family!
