Yanagawa boat ride


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.
