Ozu, Ehime

49 Furoan and Garyu Deep Experienced Aboard a Houseboat

Built in the kakezukuri or “overhang” style jutting out over a cliff, Furoan in Garyu Sanso, a nationally important cultural heritage site, offers stunning views of lush greenery and red autumn leaves reflected on the river’s surface on days when the wind is calm. One of Japan’s top three spots for cormorant fishing, Ukai in Ozu can enjoy the rare place in the country where cormorant fishing boats and houseboats are operated together. Witness the boatmen’s high level of steering skill as you enjoy your meal.
