Half Day Rafting
Join us on the four kilometer Toyonaga stretch on the Yoshino river, one of Japans premier half day rafting courses.
We spend about 2 and a half hours on the river navigating four large rapids with another 10 smaller rapids making up the whole course. Between the rush of the rapids are big long calm pools where we can play games, challenge ourselves with a 4m rock jump and swim in the clear green waters of the Yoshino river.
Our final rapid brings us to the shores of the Happy raft base where we land and walk back to our base to view the photos and talk about our adventure.
