We loved the experience. Our guide was great even though we could only communicate with simple words and gestures. His singing went very well with the tranquil surroundings - it was as if we were brought to another world. Highly recommended!

This boat trip is super recommendable. You get very beautiful views of the river. The driver sings a relaxing song for you. Very relaxing experience.

Enjoy the nature at his purest...clear water where you can admire ayu or sweet fish, an endemic fish of Japan. Let's get inspired by the folkloric song of the sailor man while admiring the cliff.

We took a boat in the morning around 11am, and the weather was really nice but a little bit chilly. We could totally forget the noisy and annoying life in Tokyo thanks to the wonderful view and the charming guide!

I recommend this destination... More

The rock formation around is absolutely beautiful. There are many ducks swimming around and to complete the scene, there are many hundreds of fish in the water... More

A fascinating piece of natural environment in the countryside of beautiful Japan.. A slow boat ride on crystal clear water provides a fantastic view of the surrounding colored with autumn leaves...

Do you sometimes wonder what a singing boat captain in traditional attire sailing the traditional way look like? Well you can experience this at the Geibi gorge while marveling at natures beauty; pristine clear waters, spectacular array of trees plus a treasure cave hmm
