The ultimate outdoor adventure weekend featuring rafting, canyoning, bungy jumping, river trekking, hot springs, music/party event, riverside BBQ and more!
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 continuous 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.
For even more thrills in the river its a great time of year to go canyoning (see the video below). 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!
If its an instant adrenalin rush that you're after look no further than the Minakami Bungy Bridge Jump!
We are staying at Canyons Alpine lodge which is right next to an awesome swimming hole and is the base for most of the adventure activities. We will be BBQing by the river on Saturday evening followed by a music/party event at Canyons in the night.
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).
Lets get out of the city and get wet in Minakami!
