  • Yata River Agebune Boat Tour
    Travel / Tourism
    Gunma Pref. Ouragunitakuramachi Iwata 2941-3
    Gunma Suigo Park is located east of the Tohoku Expressway Tatebayashi Interchange. Here you can board a traditional agebune shallow boat and tour the Yata River. Propelled by a boatman using a single bamboo pole, the tour boat travels approximately two kilometers over a one hour period. Riders can relax and enjoy the nature-rich scenery of the Yata River—if you’re lucky, you might just spy a kingfisher, too. Boat tours are only offered on Saturdays, Sunday, and holidays four months out of the year—from May to June and from September to October. Even on clear days tours may be canceled due to the state of the river, so be sure to check whether tours are running the day you intend to go.

Gunma Areas


Gunma prefecture is synonymous with onsen. Natural hot spring water sources throughout the prefecture have given rise to a series of small onsen towns, each set among luscious mountains. At Kusatsu, Ikaho, and Minakami, traditional indoor and outdoor bathing experiences are served hand in hand with irresistible onsen-themed food, including steam-cooked eggs and custard pudding.
