Oumihachiman Canal District Tour

A canal district tour on a rowboat departing and arriving at Honen Bridge in Omihachiman.
Boats on Lake Nishinoko are still rowed manually, in order to safeguard the history and traditions of Omihachiman, as well as to preserve the reed beds that spread throughout the lake.
Listen to the stories of the boatmen as they guide you around the canal district whose atmosphere changes with the seasons, and marvel at the ancient, untouched scenery while riding the “slowest vehicle in Japan.”
