The Mogami River Basho Line Boat Ride offers guests the chance to enjoy the view and leisurely travel the Mogami River.
You leisurely float down the river, surrounded by nature’s majesty, while listening to the boatman singing the “Mogami River Boat Song.” The boat ride is available year-round, and even just a single person can board the boat.

The boat departs from Furukuchi Port and travels around 12 kilometers downriver to Kusanagi Port.
When you can see Shiraito Falls, the boat will soon arrive at Kusanagi Port.

During the winter, passengers can enjoy the snowy scenery from under a warm kotatsu on the boat.
There are a variety of restaurants at both Furukuchi Port and Kusanagi Port, but if you make a reservation beforehand you can also eat a bento lunch on board the boat.
