A "yakata" boat is docked at Hozu River Gorge. The people on the boat are enjoying drinking sake. Boatmen are resting on the bow of the boat and on the rock. People took the approximately 16km boat ride from Hozu Town in Kameoka to Togetsu Bridge in Arashiyama. The river boats that carried lumber and goods from Tanba Kameoka to Kyoto were converted to leisure boats at the end of the Meiji Period when the Kyoto Railway was established.
