Yanagawa Canal boat cruise


Yanagawa is the 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.
