Hachiman-bori Canal八幡堀めぐり

4.5

9 Reviews
Pleasure Boat / Water Cruise

The Hachimanbori Boat Tour takes visitors on a tour of the Hachimanbori Canal, well known from samurai movies, in an old-style covered boat. The tour is enjoyable in any season: passengers can see cherry blossoms in the spring, willows in the summer, autumn leaves in the fall, and snowy scenery in the winter. The tour, which runs from Hakuun Bridge to Shinmachihama to the ruins of the brick factory and back, takes about 35 minutes. Whether visitors go in the crowded cherry blossom season or at less popular times, they say that they sense a different mood each time. Gliding down the canal, lined with white-walled storehouses, is a peaceful way to spend some time.

そう長い距離を乗船しているわけでは有りませんが、水郷の町ならではの体験ですね。若干水が汚れているのは気に掛かりましたが、のんびりとした時間を過ごせます。

ほりかふぇというお店の奥から乗りました。
35分間の遊覧で、たまたまなのかうち夫婦で貸し切りでした。
1人千円なので申し訳ないくらい。
テープガイド付き。
畳敷きの船内で寛げました。

4月11日に訪ねました。八幡掘は満開の桜が堀沿いの伝統的街並みにマッチ、素晴らしい時間を過ごすことができました。日牟礼神社境内の「たねや」では抹茶もぜひお勧めです。

          Visitors to Shiga prefecture are almost always hopping east across the prefectural border from Kyoto, and they are almost certainly Lake Biwa-bound. Covering an area of 670 square kilometers, Lake Biwa makes up the bulk of Shiga prefecture, with beautiful lakeside paths that offer myriad walking and cycling opportunities, connecting a string of museums, shrines, and picturesque views that finally lead you to Hikone Castle on the eastern side of the lake.
