Ibogawa River at Tatsuno


Way out in western Hyogo, the town of Tatsuno, affectionately referred to as “the little Kyoto of Harima”, is rich in history and natural beauty. The town’s river, the Ibogawa, is one of the longest in Hyogo, its blue waters flowing down from the nearby Mount Keiro making for one of the most pleasant swim spots in the region. Take a blanket and picnic here while the kids have fun in the wide but benevolent currents.


From Himeji take the Kishin line to Hon-Tatsuno station. From here, walk east to the Izumo highway and then follow this until you hit the river bank.
