Autumn Kayaking

Next Trip: Oct 30, 2022


Kayaking in Okutama is the best way to check out the incredible colors of the autumn leaves as well as having a lot of fun! We will be kayaking on the Shiromaru section of the Tama river which is predominantly a gentle lake like section famous for its incredible green and clear waters. We will be doing a beginners course so its fine for first-timers.

Later in the day, a short hike along the riverside will get us to the local Sake Brewery where we can sample the great local sake and have lunch by the river. After relaxing at, and exploring the sake brewery and gardens, you can choose to head home or visit the local onsen.

I had a great time kayaking ! Scenery is amazing, very picturesque, the staff was friendly and helpful (plus tried their best with english). Lunch at Sake brewery is a wonderful experience, I was not aware of this place, and I think that it is a must see/taste in the Okutama neighbourhood! Big up to Ken-san who came with his super happy mood and help us all along ! 10/10 would recommend !
