Tour Information

Packraft Downriver Course (Okutama)

This pack raft course is for those who can paddle in a river with strong flow and occasional whitewater. One of the great sensations with pack rafting is that you can feel the small waves moving up and down underneath you on the river, which you do not experience with normal rafting. 

Even on the relatively mellow water of the Tama River you will feel the thrills as if you are on a much faster flow. The section you will run is a spot not used by other companies for tours so you will have this piece of tranquil nature all to yourself!

Please note: due to river flow we only operate this tour during October
