This is a leisurely beginner-friendly overnight canoe route on the Mukawa River 鵡川, only two hours drive east from Sapporo City. The route starts from Tomiuchi, where the river transforms to a gentle meander - a far cry from the steep whitewater further upstream. Paddlers will enjoy deep forested river banks, teeming with wildlife. Keep an eye out for native ezo deer wading across the river, as well as storks and other wild birds. There are a number of convenient gravel banks to camp on along the way. In this route, we recommend taking out before the first major weir on the river.
