Canoeing in Japan

Anyone interested in canoeing in Japan. I have paddled several rivers in Japan around Tokyo, and plan to do several more rivers now that I have bought a house there. I still dont have a car. I just board trains or buses with my trusted inflatable canoe and head up river. If you are interested in my adventures see my canoeing blog at

I’ve wanted to give it a try the last few times I’ve been over, but haven’t been able to work out the logistics.

When I’m in Japan it is for business, without any kayaking gear.

Typically Kobe of Nagasaki.

Done a few kayak paddles
on Edo and Tone rivers. I am more interested in sea kayaking the Nansei-Shoto.
