Story & Recommendation
Enjoy the beauty of Fushimi from a boat on a Fushimi Jikkokubune Boat Cruise
Fushimi’s flat-bottomed jikkokubune boats started carrying freight and passengers between Kyoto’s Fushimi and Osaka in the Edo period, and these boats kept going between these two cities until late Meiji period. Now the boat line runs from spring to autumn and lets tourists see the sake breweries and the beautiful scenery from the seats of a jikkokubune. In spring you get to see cherry blossoms, in summer the green leaves, and in autumn the autumn leaves, so the boat cruise offers you something different every season. When you come to Fushimi in Kyoto, I hope you will not only go to the sake breweries but will also take the Jikkokubune boat ride!
