One day tour of Oirase and Towada: A taste of the area's superb views and great outdoors

A full day of natural splendor on both water and land in Oirase and Towada!


Trekking in Oirase with a mountain stream and beautiful nature of the four seasons is the great power of Lake Towada. With a jet boat comes this private tour where you can enjoy the wilderness of Oirase and Towada.
Under the guidance of the local residents who guide this tour, you will experience the beautiful flows of the streams scattered about the Oirase mountain streams, and then on to Ashura stream, Kujukushima, the Kumoi waterfall, and waters of Samusawa stream, and also marvel at superb viewpoints such as Choshiotaki. These sights will be seen on foot, with some transportation by bus between the areas. This will allow you to get up close and personal with not only the flow of beautiful mountain stream, but also verdant foliage and flora, along with rocks, moss, ferns, and beech. Such beauty as this is best observed leisurely and attentively while in the midst of this wild, natural theatre. Here you will feel familiarity and intimacy with the nature around you.
After lunch at Towada Lake, you will be treated to a jet boat tour on Lake Towada as provided by Guriland Boat Adventures. You will experience the rush of speeding through nature on a high speed, high grade rubber boat adapted for tourism use from the original military design. This is the first time a boat like this has been used for tourism in Japan. On the boat, it will just be you, bears and antelope on the shore, giant fish in the water, and the giant sky above. It is here that you’ll be able to observe up close wild animals such as eagles and so much more, all in the midst of glittering, gushing water.
Also from the boat, you will see famous and mysterious sights, such as the likeness of Christ, magical creeks, and intensely glistening waters. Sights like this on a boat ride like this make for a not-stop, invigorating experience for both adults and children alike.
Please allow us to share with you the magic of Oirase and Towada both on land and from the lake, with a thrilling boat ride to heighten this all-encompassing experience even more.
