This TV advertisement portrays the atmosphere of Kawa-kudari, literally means going down a river in a boat or a raft, which can be experienced in many waterways in Japan. As the song of “Ina-bushi” which a boatman in the animation parodies, its setting is the Tenryu River that drains from the Lake Suwa in Nagano prefecture into the Pacific Ocean, grazing Aichi and Shizuoka prefecture en route. A boatman puts on a headband with a thin Japanese hand towelTenugui, a white-colored belly protector called Sarashi and a traditional Japanese jacket Happi, and also holds a bamboo pole to control the raft. It is notable that the background images of a gorge in the opening and closing shots are depicted in a style of Suibokuga, a brush painting created by a black ink Sumi only.
