Did a day trip from Tokyo to Nagatoro/Chichibu. This boat trip was named 'romantic'. Not sure what, if anything was romantic about it, but we had a laugh and got a little wet.

When we got to Iwadatami and saw the boats, we realised the kids would be fine and enquired about the cost, it was... More
