What is Rafting?


Rafting is the most fun way to explore a river. We pump up the inflatable rafts each morning, split into teams, get our teamwork together, then get out there and take on the biggest rapids Japan has to offer. There is no better way to experience the river. And Yes we guarantee that you are going to get wet.
