What is the Kyak Tour in tokyo

History of the Kyak tour in tokyo
Tokyo has grown as a “city of water” since the beginning of the 17th century. The waterway maintained by the first generals of the Edo shogunate, Ieyasu Tokugawa, not only carries supplies and people by boat, but also produced a culture of boating. Even now, the waterside area of the city center is filled with the unique charm of Tokyo.

A thin windbreaker should be prepared even in the summer. If you participate in suitable clothes, the kayak tour will be more enjoyable.
