This is the first time for me to challenge the rafting, but I really enjoy rafting with the great guides and friendly other guests. Especially Otaki surfin trial is one of the best activity, so exciting! If you need, the staff provide reasonable and cozy guesthouse, you can also enjoy after rafting.

Mark as Teru are champs and really make rafting a fun experience. It is worth the money. Stop reading and book now. Everything is included just turn up and they look after you. I reckon everyone from beginners to experienced river rats would have fun. We stayed two nights in the guesthouse which has an amazing view and is very... More

My wife, 1.5 year old daughter and myself stayed 3 nights at the Happyraft Guesthouse and enjoyed a number of great runs on the river in a kayak with the super friendly crew at Happyraft. Being experienced kayakers we loved the clear water of the Yosiho river with some excellent rapids. The mostly english speaking crew gave us a safe... More

We did the rafting day trip and stayed at their guesthouse. It was a great experience front to back! We'd been rafting a few other places and thought the rapids here were some of the best we've gone through. It also helped that it had poured the two nights before, so water levels were nice and high. If you let... More

Had a great afternoon rafting with these guys! We had the luck to get a small raft and a great instructor, so the fun was even bigger! Next to the rafting their base has the perfect atmosphere and the bagels are magnificent! Best crew ever, they even picked us up and brought us back to Oboke station!

Refreshing waters. Great view. Friendly staff. I had a great experience here at happyraft. But if you are looking for lots of the adrenaline rush white waters, here has only shot rapids followed by calm waters. It depends on what you are looking for and your expectations for this river rafting experience. To share my experience, i decided to cool... More

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
