Become one with the Niyodo River, the clearest river in Japan, on this see-through kayak experience.
This is a special kayaking experience that can only be experienced in Shikoku. On this transparent kayaking tour you can see the bottom of the Niyodo River and its marine life from beneath you as if you were right there in the water with the fish.
If the weather conditions are right, you can also experience a midair boat ride, where the boat appears to be floating. To paddle along the clearest river in Japan while soaking in the surrounding greenery is a rejuvinating experience which will relax you and give you a workout at the same time.
There is almost no current running in the river, and experienced instructors will accompany you, so even children can enjoy partake. The experience will be filmed with a drone, and you will be able to take the pictures home afterwards.
