カナディアンカヌーは２度目の体験でしたが、 インストラクターの方の気配りケアが心地よかったです。 十和田湖は神秘的で癒されながら楽しめました。 子供たちもカヌーに慣れて足を湖に入れながらくつろぎ、 妻は時折差し込む日光を避け、日傘を差しながら、 僕だけパドルを漕ぐカヌーを楽しみました。 入り江で出して頂いたティーとケーキも抜群でした。 又の機会があれば宜しくお願いします。

Before Towada still woke up from sleep Tour Time The tour will begin. A calm lake surface with calm air and calm winds. Each time you row, you can clearly hear the sound of grabbing the water, and the canoe advances as you slide. One of the attractions of this tour is that you can enjoy the tranquility and look at it naturally. Of course, that is not all. After all, the time when Lake Towada shines the most is the moment when the sun was bathed. The dazzling light emitted with the sunrise gently and powerfully envelops the lake in the forest.
