Awesome Staff!

This was the first time my wife and I tried rafting. What a rush and what an amazing experience. The staff there were so cool and helpful. I think all of them spoke English as well. I absolutely recommend this place. I will definitely go back for a second trip before leaving Japan. A MUST!!!

Great day of rafting

This is a great place, the staff were friendly and very helpful and the day of rafting was excellent. The place is over crowed with kiwis but they have a heap of knowledge and experience. I stayed for 2 nights, in a room that normally would hold 6 people....the beds are bunks and basic, but if you were part of a group that could make your own fun, with a few beers and something to snack on the place would be fine. I did the 1 day rafting and the day was great, water was clear and cold and the guides made sure you had a good time. Lunch was by the side of the river and was just the thing after a bit of paddling. Highly recommend this day
