arrowOffering 5 different tour options that include an appealing evening on the water during these summer months, Tokyo Great Kayaking Tour is a wonderful adventure for visitors and locals alike.
Based conveniently near the Sumida Gawa River and with access to numerous canals and sites, the tours operated by ‘Alive & Kicking Co’ provide paddlers, experienced and inexperienced, the chance to explore Tokyo from a water based perspective. It is always so calming being in a kayak. Paddling strongly or cruising with the gentle current, there is ample chance to breathe, to refresh, and to engage in the energy of one of the worlds largest cities as an observer and a surprising passer-by.
Let the experienced and passionate guides take you places that very few get to experience. The guides themselves include adventure backgrounds such as paddling, skiing, hiking, scuba diving, and more with some being leaders of kayak teams and even a finalist in Japans National Kayak Racing Championships. Languages spoken include Japanese, English, Polish, Denish and little Chinese, Portuguese and Spanish.
The five fascinating tours available are:
1. East Tokyo Canal Tour This 3hr and 12kn paddle takes you across the Sumida Gawa into Koto Ku and amongst its many canals. Usually it includes the fascinating Ogibashi Lock Gate but that is being upgraded for seismic strengthening until March 2019.
2. Kayak Trial For Beginners This may be a little misleading, as it is still a reasonable paddle of 5km over 1.5hrs. It will take you into Nihombashi and also includes a good stretch of the Sumida Gawa with a view of Tokyo Bridge. It’s an uncomplicated enjoyable excursion where you can test your stamina before taking on one of the longer tours.
3. Hanami Seasonal Tour Make a note of this one and get in early to reserve your tour at this spectacular time of year.
4. Central Tokyo Canal Tour The longest tour, this 3hr and 15km paddle takes you as far as Suidobashi through the interesting artificial valley of Ochanomizu. Feel the power!
5. Evening Seasonal Tour
Perhaps the most appealing option at this time of the year with its warmer daytime temperatures, the evening tour offers convenience with relief from the cemented heat of the city. It runs between May 28 and Sept 14. It is a one hour and 5km going inland experiencing the strange tranquility and peace as the city buzzes around you.
