Kamo River Night Walk

Tour Introduction

Although running through the center of Kyoto City, the iconic Kamo River is abundant with aquatic wildlife including over 30 species of fish, four species of turtles, and the legendary Giant Salamander, the largest amphibian in the world.
 
In this tour, we will walk along the banks and wade through the shallow areas of the river after sunset, when the animals are easiest to observe. We will provide you with full equipment including marine shoes, a headlight and a dip net.
 
You will learn about the biology of the animals, as well as conservation and invasive species issues that threaten the local wildlife. In order to secure your safety, we limit the number of guests to 5 people. 

Point of This Tour

If you are lucky, you might be able to witness the Giant Salamander, the largest amphibian in the world!

We will provide you with all the gear. Get your hands wet and catch what you can find!

Many species of fish call Kamo River home.
