World class experiences under 2 hours from Tokyo
Canyons rafting tours are only held in the Minakami area. The Spring Season brings world-class grade 4+ whitewater and high thrills, and Summer Season involves enjoying playing in and outside the boat on a melow grade 1-2 section. The two seasons are very different in terms of distance covered on the river and the type of experience, so pick your ideal thrill level.
If you haven't tried canyoning yet, Japan is an amazing location to get into this adventure sport; crystal clear water, pure air, amazing views at every turn, and world class canyons. Our two main areas of Minakami and Okutama are both under 90 minutes from Tokyo.
Packrafting is a single person inflatible kayak. It requires a decent level of fitness and simming ability. At Canyons we use a level system with up to level 2 being suitable for first time packrafters to learn the basics and level 3 or above best for people with double blade (kayak) experience.
If you want to try both rafting and canyoning, then one of combo tours will be a perfect fit! In Minakami there are a whole range of outdoor activities on offer and it is for this reason that it is so well known as an outdoor paradise. By combining activities you also get awesome discounts with between 15-20% off the normal cost.
