[Characteritics of the Isumi River]
The largest river in the Bosos Peninsula. The total water flow area exceeds
300 square-kilometers. Annaul rainfall of these areas exceeds 2000mm.
Since the river flow increrases very rapidly, you should wait at least two days
after the medium-heavy railfall.
First recommendation is to familiarize with the paddling at the rivermouth of the Isumi River. Sea tide normally reaches upsteam of the Kotoh Bridge. In other words, the river flow is rather slow.
At the Hiari-Izumiura beaches, ther are strong currents going out to the ocean, whichi is called "Mio" locally. Mio will take you off the beach some 1000m within a minute .
