Enjoy spectacular seasonal views and Japanese traditional cuisine on an elegant boat.
River cruising is a wonderful way to discover Kyoto’s rich culture and tranquil scenery. The Oi (Katsura) river runs through the middle of Arashiyama, which is most famous for its bamboo groves. Yakata-bune is an old fashioned popular style of boat and it has been Japan’s best kept secret- dating back to the Heian Period. This was the luxurious way for princes and princesses to indulge themselves. Here in Arashiyama, while gliding over the gentle waves of the Oi river, you can enjoy not only the beautiful views, but also a delicious Japanese dinner; sizzling tempura, Sukiyaki or a Kaiseki style formal dinner.
