Kawanobori River Rafting
Rafting on the Oda River was originally used as a means of transportation for timber harvested from the mountains in the latter part of the Edo period. The timber was transported to Nagahama at the mouth of the river by making rafts called “Komata”, made of about 10 4-meter long logs. Rafting was completely abolished with the opening of forest roads in 1948. Trying to recreate the scenery with rafts floating on the river, they have revived the rafting as the local event for the first time in 45 years.
