Hozu River is a part of the Katsura River in Kyoto that stretches for 16km between Kameoka to Arashiyamna. While this river first was used to transport goods downstream from Kyoto to Osaka, nowadays guests come to the river to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. Taking a boat tour has become a popular past-time through the picturesque canyon and over some rapids in Kyoto. The scenic ride takes about two hours and roughly seats twenty passengers while three boatmen power the boat with poles and oars. Boat tours are becoming more popular, with special options to enjoy depending on the season.
