I first met Hige-san and Wanihime-san in 2010 when I sailed my 16-foot dinghy into Yumigahama in Southern Izu Peninsula. They gave me my first kayak lesson sometime after that and I have visited them almost annually since. They both provide great kayaking tours of the beautiful local Geopark coastlines. They fit the tour to meet your physical needs, experience level, and interests. And if you have a pet dog, you are more than welcome to bring it along with you! I have yet to take my cats however!
