[Easy English Blog] Boat ride

There is a interesting boat ride in my city in Japan. It is called “Horikawa Sightseeing Boat”. In my city, there is a castle. Around the castle, there is water. This is called a “moat”. There are also many rivers in my city. The boat sails around the moat and the rivers. The boat is small. It is around 8 metres long and 2 metres wide. About 10 people can ride the boat.

In winter, the boat has a “kotatsu”. A kotatsu is a Japanese heater with a heated blanket. People on the boat can sit under the blanket and enjoy the winter scenery while keeping warm. I think it is a good idea.

When my family or friends visit me, I always take them on this boat. They enjoy it very much. My city is very traditional. It has many old buildings and natural scenery. Of course, it is good to see the buildings and scenery when we are walking, but it is also nice to see them from the boat.
