Kuzuryu Geo Kack

One of Japan's largest dams in capacity and boasting the best water, the Kuzuryu Dam lakeshore was complete 60 years ago. Parent and child guest pairs can land their tandem kayaks on the lake shore with a fossil guide along to take part in a fossil-hunting experience on land not disturbed for 100 to 300 million years. These are guided tour adventures for fans of kayaking, fossil hunting and excitement.
