day 117 - white water Kyoto
Yesterday we took the day off and went to Kyoto with Matt & Em. We left here really early to do the Hozu-gawa river trip. We caught a local train to Kameoka where we boarded a flat-bottomed boat. Very skilled boatmen used long bamboo poles to push us through the wider, deeper sections of the river until we hit the rapids and they used the poles to deflect us from the rocks. A great way to see some white water, mountains, dense forest and canyons the lazy way!
