    I enjoyed it with confidence (^-^) /
    I participated in the second grade of elementary school and parents and children. The guidelines have provided solid support, so you can enjoy it with confidence. It's almost off in the season, but it's safe to have a wet suit, and the children are delighted to walk around the autumn leaves. I was able to enjoy Okutama, which is a bit different from summer. Thank you very much.

    it was a fun time
    First rafting. I was thrilled, but it was a lot of fun. There is a staff member who specializes in taking pictures, and he says he wants to see pictures from various angles at home and go again. I thought, "You can row well other than that," but that's because the staff steered well behind me. They take pictures, encourage me, and sometimes sprinkle water on them to make them lively. Thank you, Mr. Taishi. Next time, I would like to join my son who couldn't go this time.

    Good weather
    It was a nice day and there was a lot of water and it was a lot of fun! I spent a very fulfilling half day not only going down the river by rafting, but also jumping in and getting off the boat on the way to play. Also, the instructor is a veteran and very safe. And cool lol Photos are included in the price and can be saved and are a wonderful summer memory.

Frequently Asked Questions about Rafting

Q Rafting What is it?

A Rafting is a type of water sport where you can enjoy going down the river on a rubber boat called a "raft". Seven to eight people, including a guide, board one boat and experience the so-called torrent descent. While the popularity is concentrated in the summer when the temperature rises, the water is cold in the early spring, but the amount of water increases due to the melted snow, and you can enjoy a more thrilling rafting experience.

Q What do I need to bring for a rafting experience?

A Professional equipment such as "helmets" and "life jackets" can be rented on many tours. It is also related to safety, so be sure to choose the one that suits your physique. It is an activity that requires the whole body to be soaked, such as bathing in water or entering a river in some cases. Be sure to bring your swimsuit, change of clothes, and change of shoes.

Q What kind of clothes should I wear during the summer?

A Wetsuits are often not worn during the hot summer months, so be sure to bring a T-shirt and shorts to wear over your swimsuit. For women, it is safer to avoid design-oriented swimwear such as bikini types and frills. We recommend using a T-shirt that dries quickly, such as polyester or nylon, rather than a cotton material that becomes heavy and hard to dry when wet.

Q What kind of clothes should I wear during the fall-spring season?

A For rafting in cold regions such as Hokkaido even when the water is cold or in the summer, it is basic to wear a "wet suit" or "dry suit" over a T-shirt or shorts. Many shops offer rental services for these items, but be sure to check the rental details at the time of booking, including the corresponding sizes.
