Yanagawa Canal boat cruise


Yanagawa is a Castle town located in southern part of Fukuoka-prefecture.

There is no castle ruin any more and only roadside canals are left here. 

Yanagawa Canal boat cruise is to board a small boat called the Donkobune and slowly go down

the river skillfully maneuvered by a boatman with bamboo pole. 


You will enjoy a leisurely cruise along the streets and houses which still retain some remnants of castle town, hearing the boatman’s explanation of the history and landscape of Yanagawa.  You can also enjoy the

specialty of Yanagawa eel steamed in basket called “Unagi-no-seiromushi” on the boat.
