A small boat docked by the rocky riverbank is seen from the southern shore. The bare surface of the hillside shows that many trees had been felled. 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.
