"Down the Hozu river" Hozu River Tip by CliffClaven
Hozu River, Kyoto: 3 reviews and 2 photos
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.
