Tokyo day trip kayaking in jungle stream of Saitama

Lake Tamayodo and the little jungle stream, Saitama

Situated about 10km downstream from the famous Nagatoro Gorge, the hidden gem of this lake lies in a fish-rich jungle-like little stream. It’s surrounded by beautiful lush vegetation with wild palm trees (Windmill palm), and offers a gorgeously calm paddle. There is no walking trail, so bring your own kayak or packraft for this special spot! Lake Tamayodo is located about 90 minutes from central Tokyo by car.
