Ichiban Maru

Take in the scenery along the Seta River’s banks in comfort. This paddlewheel boat also provides transport to Ishiyama-dera Temple, one of 33 temples on the Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage.
Riding the vessel is like taking a step back in time, as the cruise boat’s design is based on the Ichiban Maru, a steam-driven ship that once navigated these waters in the Meiji Period (1868-1912).
