The price for the boat ride is a bit more than 1000 yen per person. The prerecorded English narration during the ride isn't so great so personally I just tuned it out, since it was hard to understand anyway. It was probably done by a...More

Remember to spare time to take the boat ridge which is about 30 minute. The boat trip is not rough during winter time. The boat trip is peaceful but the captain only speaks in Japanese and we can’t understand what he said.

The river and surrounding mountains were all in one natural setting unspoiled by man. The rocks in the river were carved over time. The trees were untouched as they grew hundreds of feet towards the sky. Must visit to witness how nature should be and...More

Oboke is a good stop for visiting the Iya Valley in Shikoku. I like it because of the fantastic mountain and valley views, its azure colored rivers and many onsen spas, as well as my favorite Japanese guest house, Kunelasob. Easily accessible by train, the...More
