Try a worry-free SUP cruising experience on a water surface without waves. Even beginners are able to stand on the SUP (stand-up paddle) board and move themselves with a paddle. If you are not confident, you can sit down and row. The higher the water level of the dam, the more upstream you can travel and view. This tour is a seasonal tour offered mid-April to mid-July, when the water surface is high. The best months are May and June, especially May! Don't miss it!

[Experience Schedule]
Change clothes, activity instruction and paddle practice on land (10 minutes).
SUP Tour (60 to 120 minutes, depending on water level and physical strength).
Change clothes, finish.

On some days the tour time can be changed. We recommend an early morning experience. At that time the wind is gentle and the air is fresh and crisp! In the early morning there are few people and we can have the bay to ourselves! Please request your desired start time. Participants 12 years and under must be accompanied by an adult and ride together on the same SUP board. In such a case, there is no charge for the child. (Children's life jackets can be borrowed free of charge.) If you are participating in a group of more than 5 people, please contact us.

"It's like a world straight out of the anime Dragon Ball!" Overseas visitors have made comments like this about the beauty upstream of the dam. Listen to the sounds birds while paddling along to view mountains, rocks, and hidden waterfalls. We can take breaks at the upstream rocky areas depending on the water level, then children can play on the rocks. Enjoy the spectacular mountain SUP experience that even most Sendai citizens don’t know about!
