Canoe/Kayak trial class (with an instructor)

In Kozagawa river, there are towers of giant rocks, and strangely shaped stones, with vast scenery stretching in the background. In spring, you can see sakura, and in the fall, you can see autumn leaves turning colors and Japanese pampas grass coloring the riverside. Depending on the four seasons, the river shows a variety of expressions. The flow of the Kozagawa river is relatively gentle, so even beginners can fully enjoy kayaking. Why not feel some great nature and go kayaking leisurely down the river?

    The whole experience is TOP

    Cool local guides showed us the ins and outs of kayaking in a quiet stretch of the river near Koza JR station. Mont-bell waterproof clothes and shoes provided for rent, but it was a slow easy river on this sunny February afternoon.

  • Chris

    The trip down the river was peaceful and relaxing. A pleasure to be on the water with some wildlife we saw along the way.

  • Fernando

    This was very fun and relaxing! I would recommend this to anyone!

  • Kigouya

    The actual price is not very expensive for just equipment rental.
    Apparently the experience last about four hours and is slow & comfortable during the best season.
    The location is excellent and lots of other things to do in the area.
