Discover Kyoto's Arashiyama district and have lunch aboard a traditional Yakatabune boat!

The cruise starts in Arashiyama, a Kyoto district prized for its calm atmosphere and stunning scenery. Climb aboard a traditional Yakatabune boat, a wooden boat steered by an oarsman for a private cruise.

You'll be seated on floor cushions and enjoy a bento made with typical Kyoto dishes. This cruise along the Oi River will allow you to admire the landscapes of Arashiyama and Japan's changing colours and seasons.

During the cruise, you'll see trees and plants in all their seasonal glory: the vibrant colours of Japanese maples in autumn, the snow in winter, the pink petals of the cherry blossom trees in spring, and the lush greenery in summer.

At the end of the cruise, you'll be taken back to the embarkation point.
