We went on a company trip to Kyoto.
It was pleasure getting to know our co-workers from all over Japan.
Everything was fun and memorable, from the MC (our co-worker) on the bus who made us laugh really hard, visiting the Japanese traditional snack factory, “Otabe”, having Japanese traditional lunch at a gorgeous hotel, Hozu-gawa river rafting in Hozu-kyo Gorge and to walking around the city.
The river rafting in Hozu-kyo Gorge was my first time and it became one of the most exciting experiences in this trip! I could not take my eyes off the beautiful scenes. 3 boatmen were on the boat. One of them told me that he wanted to become a fire fighter but he loves looking at people smiling. So he decided to be a boatman. To be a boatman takes time like he has experienced rowing boats for more than 10 years and he knows every location of rocks in the river.
The boatmen rowed the boat, entertained us with jokes, explaining us about Kyoto and Hozu-gawa river and everything throughout our river rafting which was about 2 hours!! They amazed me with their knowledge, kindness, humor and strength!!!
