OKUTAMA CANYONING

Tokyo day trip adventures

You will hardly be able to believe that there is such a natural paradise just 90 mins from the center of Tokyo. This is one of our most popular base locations, both for the courses that can be fully enjoyed by even complete beginners, and for the fabulously tranquil environment that allows you to completely refresh. The limestone mountains provide the some great canyoning courses with a fantastic range of slides, jumps and rapels.

If you would like to do more adventurous courses also check out Minakami Canyoning. Minakami also offers BBQ's, lodge and riverside glamping options as well as a number of dther adventures; rafting, packrafting, MTB, bungy jumping.....
