Kayaking in Ibaraki

Sunday July 28, 2019

Kujigawa river (Daigo town) or Nakagawa River (Gozenyama)

Difficulty 1 Number of Days 1 Ibaraki


It will be a one-day easy discovery session for anyone interested in kayaking on a quite river section with no white waters. Absolute beginners who wish to learn and skilled kayakers who wish to practice and/or take care of the beginners are welcome.

Matsuura-san will provide us with all the equipment we need (kayaks, paddle, life jacket) free of charge from the Kayaking Club of Tsukuba University so seize the opportunity to enjoy water sports !

Two destinations are considered at the time of writing: Kujigawa river (Daigo town northern Ibaraki, 1.5 hours from Tsukuba) or Nakagawa River (Gozenyama, 1 h from Tsukuba).

It will be a car-based trip, with two cars available for now (=8 kayaks).
