Fast-flowing water and seasonal views on the Mogami River


The fast-flowing Mogami River in Yamagata Prefecture is a hub for outdoor adventure throughout the year. From spring to early summer, high water levels and strong currents make it ideal for rafting. In fall and winter, board a boat trip to view the autumn leaves and snowscapes. Winter cruises offer extra comfort in the form of kotatsu—heated tables covered with blankets.
