Kyoto river boat ride adventure by Content Catnip TV

Arashiyama is a charming little town just on the outskirts of Kyoto that features a lot of highly regarded UNESCO Heritage sites such as the Kinkaku-Ji temple. Although we found that surprisingly the most enjoyable activity was simply floating along the river in an old wooden boat and being guided by two funny guys, along with a few unexpected surprises down the river.

To make this video, I used a Feiyutech g6 Plus gimbal for stabilisation, along with a Canon G7 x Mark II for the short dynamic shots. For super incredible zoom I used a Nikon CoolPix P900. To edit this I used Hit Film Express. I highly recommend Hit Film, it’s amazing and free and far better than Adobe Premier.

  1. A beautiful video. When I lived in Kyoto in the 80s, we would walk up the train tracks (and through tunnels) to swim in this river (the Kurama) in heat of the summer. It was a delight, so close to the city, but so clean and beautiful and rarely another soul to be seen.

    1. What a delightful and beautiful memory, thanks for sharing it with me. This place has a special magic certainly and the river is still clean like that too, as far as I could tell.
