The wait is nearly over!  April 29th marks the kickoff for the 2017 rafting and canyoning season and it is promising to be a cracker!  We have had a lot of snow this winter which means a long high water season.  The dams are expected to start releasing late April and we are expecting high water to last to late June. So if you are keen for an world class whitewater experience in Japan then Spring is the time to come rafting in Minakami.

The canyoning in Minakami in early May will also be very high flow so recommended for those looking for a full-on whitewater canyoning experience. If you are keen for a melower canyoning experience then check out our Okutama canyoning.

In early May the cherry blossoms will also be in full bloom in upper Minakami so make the most of your trip by adding a hot spring at the famous Takaragawa Onsen and enjoy the mountain cherry blossoms.  If you are looking for Minakami accommodation we have some great packages with adventures.
