Website launched for "Mugenkyo" ravine boat in Fukushima's Okuaizu area

25 November 2019

A website has launched for "Mugenkyo no watashi" (Mugenkyo ravine river crossing) at a top tourist spot in the Okuaizu area in northwestern Fukushima Prefecture, allowing tourists to conveniently reserve boat tickets around the clock.

The service ferries passengers by rowboat across the Tadami River between the towns of Kaneyama and Mishima. Weather permitting, visitors can enjoy fantastic views of mist shrouding the river surface. The number of passengers has been increasingly sharply in recent years. The website (//www.mugenkyo.info/) introduces the history of Mugenkyo and various must-see spots elsewhere in the area. It is also available in English, Chinese and Korean.

This season's service has already closed, but it will restart around late April 2020.
