    Down the Hozu river

    by CliffClaven Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Old Cliffie is a bit too old for white-knuckle pastimes such as bungee jumping or whitewater rafting. But he did enjoy the 'Hozugawa Kudari' - trip down the river Hozu - near Kyoto. Take the train (20 minutes) from Kyoto to Kameoka, from where it's a ten-minute walk to the river. The trip lasts just under two hours along a deep, twisting gorge through mildly exciting rapids to Arashiyama on the west side of Kyoto. At about 40 dollars (25 for children), the trip is not cheap. Poor old Cliffie had to dig deep into his pocket when he volunteered to take five junior members of the Claven clan on the trip one day.

    Hozugawa Kudari. The boattrip is about an hour ride out of Kyoto and a little pricy at 3900\ but if it’s spring or fall, you’ll get some great views and pics. Go with friends b/c there aren’t as many rapids as the brochure implies so you’ll need the distraction!

    Hozukyo, north of Arrashiyama, Kyoto. It is a cool place to hang around in the summer. You catch the Sannin line from Kyoto station and get off at Hozukyo. Then you'll need to make your way down to the river. Just follow all the others doing the same.
