  • Yanagawa Boat Tour
    Travel / Tourism
    Yanagawa-shi, Fukuoka prefecture
    A leisurely ride in a shallow donkobune boat down a canal passing through Yanagawa, a city renowned for the beauty of its waterways. Dug as part of the construction of Yanagawa Castle, the canal twists its way through sluice gates and under bridges, revealing the elegant scenery of a former castle town during its one hour and 10-minute journey. One of the tour’s key attractions is that it provides riders with the chance to enjoy a slightly different side of Japan, such as the red brick warehouses and white namako-kabe tile and plaster walls in the late Meiji period preservation district. The stirring songs and performance provided by the boat pilot are also highlights. Nishitetsu Yanagawa Station is the closest station to the boarding dock.
