We had a very nice rafting experience! The rafting was exiting and we had a lot of fun with the funny good English speaking guide!

If you don't do anything else on Shikoku - do this! We loved it and should have stayed another few days and done some more rafting with this fun loving bunch on the beautiful Yoshino river. We will be back with company - especially since they've seen the photos. Well done guys - you rock!

Happy Raft is a tremendously well run and well executed adventure company. My wife and I stayed in one of their cozy guest houses for two nights, rafted a full day then did their canyonering half day trip. The rafting was fun with the guides providing an atmosphere of good hearted fun. The canyonering was a fun surprise. Great location!... More

My husband and I recently went down the Yoshino River with the HappyRaft team. Having been white water rafting for years I was excited to see what Japan would offer. We were not disappointed! The river runs through some of the most beautiful areas I have seen in Japan. The white water (up to class 4 on the day we... More

This was probably one of my favourite group experiences in Japan! We stayed the night in the guest house Happy Raft offers, and ended up meeting another group of Canadians there. The guest house is older and the washroom facilities are a little cramped, but certainly what you'd expect for a guest house on a mountain in a tiny little... More

A group of us came down for a half day white water rafting tour. There were no more accommodations available, so instead we chose (since we live relatively close) to split up between a couple cars and drive down. It's a long, but gorgeous drive, though anyone traveling through Japan via car knows that Expressways are expensive and Bridges, moreso.... More

I was lucky enough to have some friends take me to Shikoku and we did a half day rafting trip with Happy Raft. The guides were excellent and there is no doubt Happy Raft is a well run operation with a high level of safety and professionalism but still know how to have fun. The guides speak both Japanese and... More

We had a fantastic time at Happy Raft in April. Our rafting trip coincided with Happy Raft's Disaster Appeal fundraising day and the local communities Hanami (cherry blossom viewing) event. We had a ball on the river and afterwards. We were fortunate that our trip to Shikoku coincided with the Hanami celebrations in Otoyo-cho. We got to taste the famous... More
