The Kitagawa river and Kogawa river system is known for its extremely clear water. In addition to its transparent water, the area has an aquatic life population that is renowned as some of the best in the nation. While canoeing down the river the stones on the river bottom and see fishes such as ayu (sweetfish) or carp are visible swimming in groups away from the canoes. Starting in September, you can also enjoy diving from rocks along the river or Chinka Bridge, which is designed to be underwater during floods! This activity will take place at Houri River, a clear stream similar to the Kitagawa River.
