    Kumamoto Pref. Hitoyoshishi Shimoshinmachi 333-1
    "It is located an approximately 10-minute drive from the Hitoyoshi Interchange on the Kyushu Expressway. This popular activity lets you descend the Kuma River, one of Japan's three most fast-flowing rivers along with the Mogami River and Fujigawa River, in a wooden boat that the boatman skillfully maneuvers. You can feel the exhilaration of passing through huge rocks you come very close to and rough waves. The approximately 50-minute ""Seiryu course"" from the Hitoyoshi departure dock to the hot spring town of Hitoyoshi is available from March to November. Between December and February, it becomes relaxing boat with kotatsu (tables heated underneath), offering a different way of enjoyment than the rough rafting in the summer."

    Must do activity while in Hitoyoshi. Made reservation at the Hitoyoshi tour information center and enjoyed a very nice tour.

    出船時間が午前10時、11時50分、午後2時、4時で、最終の時間に予約しました。 その時は私達だけでの運行で貸し切り状態。ガイドさんの話は歴史的背景を含め面白く、時には舟歌も歌って下さいました。三難所と言うように、川幅の狭い難所で、しかも岩場を縫っての通過は迫力満点でした。風も心地よく、変化の富んだ景色等、50分の船下りを大いに満喫できました。舟着場から乗舟場の無料送迎バスがあるので、乗舟場に駐車...
