Outstanding Kayak Tour
Aug 2020
This was my first time sea kayaking, but it was a lot of fun!! My guide was a great teacher and was very patient with my slow pace! He took me to a gorgeous shrine and taught me a lot about the town and the sea. The scenery was so beautiful! I highly recommend this trip!

Fantastic half day kayaking
May 2019 • Couples
My wife and I had a really fantastic 1/2 days canoeing. We paddled south down the coast past small islands to the Bandai-ji temple seeing nesting sea birds and sea life on the way. The guide was terrifically friendly and gave us tea and biscuits on the beach next to the temple. We had arranged a half day trip but the guide spent 6 hours with us including a pick up from Fukuyama station. We had a really great half day.

Outstanding Experience with Amazing Guide
May 2019
Our guide/owner/barista took us (two 60+ year old women without much kayak experience) past beautiful islands to a beach for our afternoon "tea." When he pulled out the propane burner to heat the water for out cafe ole, we knew we had "arrived." He catered to our old hips and knees, helping us in and out of the kayak. He took care of us! We had a lovely afternoon and would do it again. The village of Tomonoura is picturesque and brought Japan alive to us.
