Tour Information

Full-Day Combo (Fox Canyon + Spring Whitewater Rafting)

Come and experience the thrill of canyoning and rafting in one hit at Canyons Minakami. Absolute beginners can enjoy this combination of two activities in one day. 


If it is your first time canyoning and you are up for some thrills, the this is the place to start. It is also perfect for groups with lots of different thrill levels! It`s easy to access and a short walk from where the bus drops you. Fox is an incredibly beautiful canyon with some great jumps, slides and waterfalls. 

After a morning of adventure canyoning we head back to base for lunch. Kick back and relax for a while before it is time to head out for the afternoon dose of thrills. 

Spring white water rafting is always a wild ride. The rapids in Minakami are some of the best in Japan and you will experience bilingual white-water guides from around the world leading trips down the amazing sections of river around town. Come and experience the sublime beauty and world class rapids of the Tone river during its spring best! Typical flows are between grade 3 and 4 and during our half day tour you will travel around 12 kilometres.
