A relaxing, fun, and beautiful experience. Went with my family, you can buy snacks and drinks before the boat ride and it's located conveniently one train from Kyoto so it's easy to get it.

It was a fun ride, it was raining during our trip. Sometimes the water was wild, that was fun! The people on the boat only spoke Japanese so I didn’t understand. It was not 2 hours though, but a big hour. Would still recommend.
