Story & Recommendation
Springtime boat ride through canal plus cherry blossom illuminations
Get on the boat for an extravagant ride through the Lake Biwa Canal. This canal brings water from Lake Biwa into the city of Kyoto. Boat transportation, once was a significant part of everyday life, now runs mainly for sight-seeing purposes for limited time every year in Kyoto. The boat ride will start from Nanzen-ji Boat Pier and travels 1.5 km to Ebisu Dam and back totaling to 3km ride in about 25 minutes. The boat will pass by Heian Shrine with an incredible view of the torii gates. This year, the boat ride is scheduled to run from March 24th to April 8th. Nighttime boat ride is scheduled to run from March 26th to April 8th during full bloom of cherry trees.
