What you'll do

We will go on a sea kayak journey to Tokyo Skytree, a symbol of the city. At 634 meters (2,080 feet), it's the tallest tower in Japan, and was designed in the image of a big tree stretching up into the blue sky. Our course will be a round trip of two and half hours. On the way, you will see the scenery of the city in harmony with nature—a kingfisher like a blue arrow, a family of ducks floating elegantly, migratory birds by season, jumping fish, and drifting jellyfish. In the oasis of the city, there are a lot of creatures. You will discover the appearance of the new Tokyo. This experience is beginner-friendly, and corresponds to all levels of kayaking. There is very little current, and the waterways are peaceful, so it's suitable for beginners. If you don't have confidence, tandem kayaks are available. A kayak doesn’t rely on motor power, and we will be able to slowly advance with the flow of the city.
