Restoration of Hitachitone River (Itako City, Ibaraki Prefecture)

Itako City, together with Sahara City located in the south of Tone River, flourished as a transshipping port to convey products of each clan of Oshu to Edo.
 Today we can enjoy attractive scenery unique to a "riverside district" as a tourist town typified by small ships coming and going on the water and boatwomen.
 Itako boating station with a 2,000m course using the straight river area is highly evaluated as a waterfront for social interaction. It won the "Handmade Hometown Award" in 1986.
