Tarai Bune Experience(Rikiya Kanko Kisen)

Venture out on the ocean on a tarai bune (tub boat)!

The tarai bune is one of Sado’s most famous sights. Originally used as washtubs, these boats are said to have been invented in 1868 and arrived at their current form through years and years of accumulated improvements. There’s no need to worry about the boats flipping over or drifting off. A female boatman will ride with you and skillfully maneuver the boat. You can also try paddling it yourself! If you manage to steer the boat successfully, you can receive a tarai bune navigator license (200 yen issuance fee).
