Minakami - in winter a snow lovers paradise, in summer an outdoor enthusiasts heaven. Summer in Minakami means, rafting, canyoning, bungy, hiking, swimming, bbqing or just getting out of the city and chilling out in beautiful natural surroundings.
Navigating the Rapids in Minakami
At this time of year the Tone River is Japans' best whitewater experience with over 12kms of world class grade 3-4 rapids. Rafting the river is a continous roller coaster of whitewater bliss with rapid after rapid of amazing action and some very scenic sections including the 3 canyon sections of Momiji Canyon, Minakami Canyon and Suwa Canyon.
Getting wet with Canyons in Minakami
For even more thrills in the river its a great time of year to go canyoning. Jumping waterfalls, cascading down natural chutes and swimming in crystal clear pools - with 80% of the time spent in the water a canyoning tour is a very fun way to get wet!
Japans Only Bridge Bungy Jump
If its an instant adrenalin rush that you're after look no further than the Minakami Bungy Bridge Jump! Check out the photos from our trip to Minakami last year to get an idea of what this is all about.
We will be stopping at the awesome Takaragawa Outdoor Onsen before returning to Tokyo. Takaragawa is a world class indoor/outdoor onsen in a beautiful natural setting. The onsen features many different bathing areas and even includes a large outdoor mixed area (separate male/female areas also available).
