This service allows passengers to enjoy drifting through the view of Geibikei, designated in 1925 as a scenic spot of natural beauty, from inside of a boat. Called the “Kotatsu Boat,” starting on December 1st this trip takes guests through the valley’s winter beauty, past about 2 kilometers of towering rock cliffs that can reach 100 meters high while the passengers stay warm under the boat’s kotatsu.
Winter in Okinawa is a sensational time of year for marine leisure activities; it’s especially renowned for its whale watching tours.
A 50-minute boat tour around the moat of Matsue Castle, a national treasure, is available.
This year, a winter-exclusive kotatsu boat has made its debut! It’s great having your feet warmed by the heat of charcoal briquettes.
For six months after October, “The culture of water” campaign will take place in Shiga, especially around lake Biwa.
Before the campaign starts, I decided to visit the eastern and northern sides of lake Biwa. The themes of my excursions are “water and life”, “water and prayer”, and “water and food”.
I walked around, talk to locals, and ate local cuisine to re-discover the charm of this beautiful area and “The culture of water”.

Moka Railway – Steam Locomotive with Cherry Blossoms and Rape Blossoms in Full Bloom! A Day Trip with Beautiful Scenery!Read Later
The Moka Railway is a local train line that spans 41.9 kilometers, from Ibaraki Prefecture’s Shimodate Station to Tochigi Prefecture’s Motegi Station. On weekends and holidays, the steam locomotive line, which makes one round-trip per day, offers a spring-limited special trip through the pink cherry blossoms and yellow rape blossoms. I highly recommend taking a trip through this area, as even those with no interest in railways can appreciate the scenery!
