Take a stroll on the riverside promenade from the pier for the cormorant fishing tour, all the way up to the Inuyama Castle. I saw the pictures with cherry blossoms along this promenade. Do visit when they are in season. Take a good view of the river from the outdoor corridor of the the Inuyama Castle. It was stunning.

Cormorant fishing was a rare experience! The magnificent views of Inuyama Castle is stunning in summer! How I wish I could visit this place on different seasons as well . . . it must be a beautiful sight to behold in autumn, winter, spring!
