  • In the footsteps of Basho

    During our 3 week visit to Japan, I really wanted to visit Basho country. I chose a ryokan in Takaya, Yamagata Prefecture by the Mogami River to satisfy this desire. Our hosts mentioned the Mogami...
  • 晩秋の最上川舟下りでおしんのロケ地をみました。

    晩秋の平日午後の便だったので、乗客は8名程度。熟練の船頭さんの話を聞きつつ、先日の台風の影響や、おしんのロケ地の話を聞きましたが、一番興味があったのは、周辺の変わり方。川向こうに3件うちがあったが、ついに誰もいなくなってしまい、耕作放棄地になってしまったことや、お米は同じつや姫でも内地がおいしいなど。ただ、途中で強制的にお店に寄らされるのは興ざめでした。
  • ゆったりした流れで1時間
    3.0 Reviewed:2019.11.17
    ゆったりと12キロくらい最上川を下る。最上川は日本三大急流の一つで川底の流れは急だということだが川面の流れはとても穏やか。古口の乗り場には大きな土産店や蕎麦屋、途中には水上売店があり、トイレも利用可。 ずっと山あいをぬって流れておりあまり変化はないが季節により新緑、紅葉、雪景色と楽しめるそうだ。
