The canal boat tour is very popular!
There are many passengers, and there is a chance that if you come late, you may not be able to ride on Saturdays and Sundays!
The number of passengers is limited on a first-come-first-served basis, so be careful and come as early as you can.
We recommend buying the boat tour ticket first, and then thinking about the sightseeing schedule later ~

The temperature has cooled down, and it is the perfect time to wear yukata and try Kurashiki Traditional Boat Tour♪

At our store, you can rent a yukata until the end of September!
Those who didn’t have a chance to wear a yukata this year, and those who want to wear a yukata rather than a kimono because it’s still hot during the day, this is your chance!
Let’s wear a yukata or kimono at the Kimono Rental Wargo Kurashiki Bikanchiku store ~ ​​(* ^^ *) ♪
