The other day I went to Yanagawa.
It is about 50 min. by Nishitetsu train from Tenjin Fukuoka.
I went downstream on a boat tour there.
There are 5 boat companies in Yanagawa.
The one I used was Yanagawa Kankou Kaihatsu, which has been operating since 1960.
You can enjoy the boat ride for about 1 hour.
The boat goes under 13 bridges.
A boatman sings Hakusyu Kitahara’s folk songs.
He is a famous poet and children’s songwriter who used to live in Yanagawa.
Yanagawa is a laid back town and the boat cruise is fun.
