Amagasaki Canal Cruise(Boat) Tour

Amagasaki Canal Cruise(Boat) Tour

[Feast on the Bounty of Amagasaki's Reborn Seas on This Tour] The Hanshin industrial belt was the center of Japan's economic development into an advanced economy. However, this resulted in smoke and pollution from factories and industrial runoff, leading to water quality issues. Residents and local groups worked together to address these issues, producing major water quality improvements that now make the area a destination for fishing enthusiasts. We offer three forms of content to let guests enjoy Amagasaki's seas to the fullest. The first is tour cruises. The tour lets passengers see the locks of the Panama Canal-style "Ama-Lock" system at work, and feel the water levels rise and fall as Japan's largest system goes into action. The view of the factories from the water is also worthwhile as a learning experience, giving rise to a sense of history and civilization alongside nature. The second is the fishing experience (with dedicated guide). You can also go on a fishing experience without bringing gear, which includes a course from an instructor. The third content type is a barbecue. The barbecue field adjoining the park is the perfect place to enjoy the fish you caught.
