Hold on tight as you fly over rapids and speed downriver! Get ready to get wet as you shoot down the rapids of Japan's biggest river on a whitewater adventure with roller-coaster thrills.
With different river courses available to cater to all ability levels–from nervous beginners to adrenaline junkies–a day of white-knuckle excitement is almost guaranteed. During the spring melt, the river swells with constant grade-4 rapids for over 7 1/2 miles (12 km) of whitewater-rafting bliss. This same section of river once played host to the rafting world cup qualifying tournament, during which teams came from around the world to prove their mastery, but you'll have a team of highly-skilled guides to help you out. This international team ensures you have a safe, fun, and unforgettable journey down Japan's mighty Tone River.
