I am always amazed with how-well-prepared the Japanese are when making local nature a tourism site. They attract people to visit the tourism site, which seems ordinary to do yet extraordinary feeling after you take a glance. I never expected ride riverboat would be so enjoyable.

Here are my reasons why riverboat ride along Mogami river is extraordinary

-Waiting is not always boring


We have to follow the exact time to ride the riverboat at Mogami. While you wait you can take a look in the shop located right after the entrance. The shop sells local handicraft, food and snack, which you can buy as souvenir. Shopping will never fail as time killer, right ?!.


-The Tour Guide is entertainer


Every boat will be guided by someone who totally an entertainer!. We are really lucky to be guided by Yuki-san, the of the best guide tour. She not just explains the spot places along the riverside but she also sing a folk song. Surprisingly she can speak many languages like English, China, even Indonesian!


-Nature with all season beauty


Indeed it is hot weather in summer, but you can feel refreshing breeze as you ride the riverboat. The green trees lined up neatly along the riverside, your eyes will never getting tired to see the green trees under the fine sky. I suggest you to visit there not only in summer but also in other season, since it has different fabulous view each season.


-Food stall in the riverside
