What you'll do

Let’s enjoy Osaka while paddling the waterway in a kayak. You'll discover new attractive viewpoints of the city that you've never seen before from land. We meet at the west exit of sakuranomiya station. Then it takes around 5~7 mins to my small storage to take the boat by a wheel device by yourself to a soft sandy beach, the start point. I will teach you some basic of the paddling and then we will practice near the beach for about 10 mins to master and get used to the boat. And then, we'll start our trip from the beach that is easy enough to splashdown, even if it's your first time. We will paddle slowly in the middle of the city. We will feel the train passing through above our head.We will take lots of unique pictures. I guarantee this will be an amazing, unforgettable experience, and I think you will fall love, both with kayaking and Osaka. By the way during cherry blossom season, you'll be able to enjoy the cherry blossom scenery from both banks. We spend totally 1 hrs on the river. This route is for the beginners of paddling. It is a short relaxing one. If you want do much longer and more challenging, please choose "Paddle through city to explore Osaka" https://www.airbnb.com/osaka_tiger_jiro_kayaking

I began kayaking 20 years ago and started my kayak world tour over 10 years ago. I have been to over 10 countries and enjoy the different landscapes by kayak. Three years ago, I was really touched by the landscapes from the Osaka city river. Now I know this river very well, and I decided to share my excitement with people from different countries. I also speak Chinese, English, and Japanese for easier communication and understanding.
