The most popular sightseeing activity in Nagatoro is the downstream boat ride. As you listen to the captain’s explanations, the Japanese boat glides down the river at a variety of paces. The beautiful natural scenery of Nagatoro will take your breath away. Not only the summer scenery, but also the cherry blossoms in the spring, autumn leaves in the fall, and special kotatsu heated tables on the boats in the winter are all something to enjoy.
