There were also Inari Shinto shrines with many red torii.

There was a torii of a form which I do not see much.
As a torii lover, it is a recommended shrine.

3.Yanagawa River Cruising

Yanagawa River Cruising
The "Yanagawa River Cruising" is exactly "Yanagawa HORIWARI Cruising".

"HORIWARI" can save water.
"HORIWARI" temporarily plays rainwater that gets off too much, preventing water pollution.
Furthermore, "HORIWARI" is also used for agricultural water, fire water and so on.
"HORIWARI" is the wisdom of the life Yanagawa built by his ancestors.

You can go down HORIWARI with "Donko bune".

Even if it rains, you can enjoy Yanagawa HORIWARI Cruising by wearing a rain gua.

There are several shipping companies operating Yanagawa HORIWARI Cruising.
I went down the river by Yanagawa Kanko Kaihatu.

The river descent not only got on the ship, it had a feeling even if I looked at it.
Even with the unfortunate rain, wearing a poncho and getting down the river may be good memories.
