Picturesque national treasure Inuyama Castle from a pleasure cruise

Cruise down the Kiso River, where you come to the spectacle of Inuyama Castle perched high on a picturesque cliff along the river bank. Odd and unusual boulders too come into view as you sail further downstream as well as the other beautiful wonders of Inuyama City.
For around 40 minutes, you can gaze upon such beautiful and scenic views only available from aboard a ship. All you have to do is sit back and take it all in.
