Where can I experience kayaks that can be enjoyed by both adults and children?
There are many rivers and bridges in Tokyo, it looks like a mesh. On the kayak tour you can see the sights of Tokyo from such canals so it's popular. Especially the course around Sky Tree is recommended.
If you go to the upper stream of the Tamagawa river, there is a spot where kayaking can be done near the natural campsite. If you are a little familiar you can experience the thrill at the Okutama River descent course!
There is a place where Kayak can participate from the third grade of elementary school, there is one person or two people ride, and time also has about 1 hour 30 minutes, so even if you do not have confidence in your physical strength is OK. There are several hours course so advanced users can enjoy this one.
Recommended (popular) spot where you can experience kayak?
In the popular spot, there is a course that goes to the Koto ward Arakawa where you can see the Tokyo Sky Tree. There are people who can enjoy even a small number of people as 1 or 2 in a short time of less than 2 hours and some early morning courses so some people enjoy it before work on weekdays!
The course looking at the night sky tree is also attractive. When it starts at dusk it is romantic as you can enjoy not only the scenery dyed by the setting sun, but also the night view of the city at the same time! Of course it is also ideal for dating.
