How to trip

SUP (Stand Up Paddling) is a new river sensation!
Enjoy the nature of the Shimanto while SUP in different ways or cruise down the river in a classic canoe!
This is a casual trial course, provided anytime and as guests request. After a basic SUP / canoe lesson, you can enjoy the activity freely, either SUP or canoe, around the Misato Chinka Bridge.
Even if you are participating with a group, you have the option to choose a SUP or canoe. Please let us know your preference!
The Shimanto River scenery is magnificent, especially during the early morning and at dusk in summer time. This is an unmistakably fun and unique way to explore and enjoy a calm river setting.
