★ Urgent! In order to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus infection, for the time being, we will hold a private tour with one guide and one customer.
Soyokyo Nakayama Dam is located upstream of the clearest stream of Gokase River in Japan. Part of Aso Geopark. It can be enjoyed according to the season from spring to autumn. The meeting was at the current Soyo Gorge General Branch, which was the former Soyo Town Hall. It is about 30 minutes from south Aso and about 40 minutes from Takachiho. The platform is a bit difficult to drive down a narrow road, so we will drive with our car. Departure at 9:30 in the morning and 13:00 in the afternoon. There is almost no flow, so it is the best way to experience a canoe for the first time. Embark on the shores of Dam Lake, aiming for the waterfall downstream. Take a photo in front of the waterfall and the pleasant breeze of negative ions! There we take a drink break while riding a canoe (one-on-one service). From there, return to the upstream and further upstream from the platform! It is said to be 90,000 Year since Aso was formed, but during that time the river shaved rocks and large stones There are plenty of power spots, such as standing trees and a mysterious waterfall with a height of about 80m. Feel the charm of Suyang Gorge, a secluded area in the southeast of the outer ring mountain, Aso, through the canoe.

Japan's Grand Canyon! Fantastic dam lake in the canyon

First of all, on land, we will give basic lectures such as paddling lessons, how to balance, how to get in and how to get off. After that, we will take a walk in the dam lake while taking a canoeing class on the surface of the water, and take a break on the beautiful riverbank on the way. From about 2 to 8 years old, kayaking for one person is still difficult, so I use a canoe that I can ride with my father or with my guide and mother. The number of customers with dogs is increasing recently.

You can enjoy it according to the season, such as fresh green in spring, playing in the river in summer, and autumn leaves in autumn.

You can enjoy rape blossoms, cherry blossoms, and warblers in March, fresh greenery from April to June, river play in clear streams from July to August, Higanbana from September to October, and autumn leaves in November. It may be canceled due to the rainy season or typhoon. If it rains lightly (1 mm), we will wear a pair of wings, but we do not overdo it. If the weather is canceled due to use, the fee will be refunded in full. After all canoeing is best when the weather is nice! Please choose the season according to your holidays and enjoyment.

There are a variety of fun

You can also have a drink during a break, play in the river, or swim in the river when taking a break upstream in the summer. The guide will bring a waterproof camera and take pictures everywhere. We will burn the captured image data to a CD and mail it at a later date. I hope you can make it with your good thoughts. Please use it as various commemorative trips. For groups, please contact us separately. A tour of up to 40 people is possible.
