Stand-Up Paddle Boarding

Next Trip: Oct 8, 2023


Stand-up paddle boarding is a leisurely and fun way to explore the area and take in the beautiful leafy green surroundings. We will be stand-up paddle boarding 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.

Following our morning on the water, we will take a short hike along the riverside 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.

Super fun experience. The river is really beautiful and Keiji did a great job of organising everything. Just wished that the experience could have been longer!
