If you have never used this style of kayak or are a heavy man I recommend the tandem kayak as it is more stable. We did the advanced route of 15kms and we didn't find it too hard, it's flat the whole way except the...More

Was looking for some guided kayaking activity while visiting in Tokyo. Found a few in country side (Okutama area) but that's a bit too far. Found one in Edogawa area but that seems to require months-ahead reservation. Then found this perfect fit via web search....More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
