Just to let those of you that don't already know about this great way to spend a weekend.
" I Love Canoe " is  based in Minakami which is only 2 hrs drive from Tokyo up the Kanetsu Express way
They do a Magnificent Canoe tour which is great for all ages from 5 years up to 100 years they even let you take your pets.The scenery is absolutely stunning and a real relief from the summer heat as well.
 It is a foreign owned family run business so you can expect quality service. The equipment is top notch to. Most of their staff are female as well that really know how to listen to what the customer wants.
They even do all the hard work for you by taking 100s of photos along the way so you can just enjoy the trip.
Half day tours as well as full day tours are available including BBQ .

The Team at Surfing in Japan has been out many times with them and recommended many of our friends to them , they all say the same thing afterwards . 
It was a Fantastic Day Out .
