This river port is about five minutes on foot from JR Furukuchi Station. It serves sightseeing boats that ply the Mogami River towards Kawa-no-Eki Mogamikyo Kusanagi. The Mogami River Basho Line Descent lets visitors take in the scenery from the river while listening to the songs of the quirky boatmen. You can get a meal along with the boat ride if you reserve in advance, and passengers who come on their own are welcome. They offer a limited period cruise course, and the boat itself transforms with the seasons with bamboo shades replacing the roof in summer and heated low kotatsu tables installed for winter.

船番所に別棟で芭蕉庵というそば屋さんができてました。季節限定の鮎の天ぷら付き蕎麦を食べました。鮎の天ぷらがとても美味しかった。

最上川下りスタート場所です。食事何処もあり舟の出発時間まで時間を潰すことができます。次回はここでお蕎麦をよばれようと思います!

最上川舟下りの出発点にある、チケットやお土産売り場・待合所です。
冬だったので、門をくぐるとかまくらがありました。
お店の入口には舟下りの時刻表がありました。
店内には「舟への持ち込みにどうぞ」と、鮎の塩焼きや玉こんにゃくの販売をしていて、おしんの人形もいました。

Yamagata Main Areas

around-area-map

Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
