Where was your first ever canyoning trip and what did you feel during the trip? Were you scared?

Fox Canyon was my first ever canyoning trip. I couldn't believe we could rappel down such a big waterfall. I had almost no feeling of fear, I just thought canyoning was simply amazing.

What is your favourite part of canyoning?

You find superb views to enjoy, which can only be seen by canyoning. For example, 50-metre-high waterfalls and the space under the waterfall. If the sunlight hits at the right time when descending a large waterfall. If the sunlight hits at the right time when descending a large waterfall, you can see a rainbow! I also love to look at the highly transparent river waters. They are so pristine and beautiful.

Why should people try canyoning in Japan?

The adventure experience will refresh your mind and body. I also think taking on new challenges will lead to personal growth and new discoveries.
