Ki-no-Matsushima Cruising


Ki-no-Matsushima boat cruise is on the Pacific coast near Katsuura Onsen and visits uniquely shaped islands with names such as Camel Rock, Lion Islands and Crane Islands.  It is an enjoyable sightseeing trip to gain a different perspective of the area.

The trip is about one hour long, with a stopover in Taiji.  For those that want to visit the Taiji whale museum (entrance fee not included), you can return on a different boat.

◆ IMPORTANT NOTICE ◆ Running only on Saturdays, Sundays and National holidays.
