Mogamigawa river Basho line boat cruise






The "Mogami River Boat Ride" offers a chance to relax and enjoy views on the Mogami River. The boat is surrounded by majestic nature while the boatman sings shanties. One can enjoy views of the seasons and the Shiraito waterfall, where water pours into the Mogami River like a string of thread. Special bentos lunches are prepared with local ingredients and Yamagata's famous Imoni soup stew are served on the boat. In the winter, it becomes a warm Kotatsu boat with heated tables. Visitors can also relax at Kusanagi Onsen near the docks.
