Option 01: 70 minutes boat tour

70 minutes boat tour Yanagawa Exploration Private Package Tour

Yanagawa is a nostalgic town 50 minutes from Hakata by train with the vestiges of its days as a castle town. Yanagawa Castle was built around 1588, and called the “Water Castle” at that time. The reason for this was the water-filled moats crisscrossing the town. A moat is a channel built around a castle to keep out enemies and animals, and often filled with water. Yanagawa river cruising takes place in these moats in small boats. In spring the cherry blossoms are beautiful, and in summer the irises bloom, for a thoroughly charming river cruise that is like a Japanese version of Venice.
