THINGS TO DO > EXPERIENCE ★Yanagawa Canal Punt Tour Ride

The city of Yanagawa is known for its web of river canals that crisscross the city in a grid, which were established about 420 years ago when artificial moats were dug to support Yanagawa Castle. The elaborate hydraulic system devised by our forebears to control the water flow has been designated a National Site for Scenic Beauty. The Yanagawa River guided boat tour is an unforgettable experience year round, with the lights and greenery of the city reflecting in the gentle water. The moat is only a 10-minute walk from Nishitetsu Yanagawa Station.
