Wow comes to mind. I am super active and adventurous. This pushed my limit. The adrenaline raced through my body. Mike and Koya the guides were terrific and kept us safe. Every aspect was fun and challenging. Best adventure so far in Japan.

My first time canyoning and although some activities we were required to do looked too thrilling for a scaredy cat like me, it was actually more fun and not as scary as they looked. We did fox in the morning and rafting in the afternoon....More
