Canal Punting Courses in Yanagawa to be Expanded

On September 5, Yanagawa City, Fukuoka Prefecture and Nishitetsu announced plans to extend one of the waterways in Yanagawa City to increase the accessibility of its river cruises. A new launching point for river punting services will be constructed right next to the west exit of Yanagawa Station by 2024. The three organizations aim to attract more people by completing the project and are planning to open a tourist facility nearby. It will be the first river cruise connected directly from the train station. Source: NHK News Web, 9/5/2019
