Spring and summer seasons are very different in terms of distance covered on the river and the type of experience, so pick your ideal thrill level.

Spring Whitewater Half-Day Rafting
The Spring Season brings world-class whitewater and high thrills when the mountain snow starts melting. The rapids in Minakami are some of the best in Japan with the main section of over 10kms of grade 3-4 whitewater.

Summer Half-Day Rafting
Summer Season offers a different experience to the big rapids and strong white water of spring. With less water flowing down the Tone the rapids mellow out and there is more time to mess about on the river.
