Boat Race Wakamatsu

Wakamatsu-Tobata area Leisure / See / Play

Though there are 24 boat racing venues throughout Japan, Wakamatsu is one of only 7 where visitors can enjoy nighttime races.
The nighttime lighting is beautiful and sets the competitions apart from daytime races.
In addition to watching races, there is also a lot that children can enjoy, including Wakawaku Land that features Bornelund educational toys, and a rock climbing park (Red Rock) that has projection mapping.
There is also a food court and parking available, so the family can have all-day fun.
