Minakami Half-Day Rafting Trip

Challenge yourself on one Japan’s best stretches of whitewater rafting during this 4-hour experience near the town of Minkami. Famed for its springtime rafting runs, when this 7.4-mile (12-kilometer) river passage swells to Class III and IV status, your rafting experience offers an adrenaline-fueled ride through the area’s scenic gorges, including Suwa, Minakami, and Momiji Canyons. Even during the summer months, when the area waters slow to a mellower Class I and II pace, it’s still a fun-filled day of boating and swimming. Your trip also includes a professional river guide, round-trip transport from selected meeting points, equipment, and tour photos and video.

We were beginner skiers, and Lin taught us for two days. We had a fantastic time - she was super-patient and encouraging, and left us confident enough to go solo down the gentler of the slopes. I'd highly recommend this as a great introduction to snow sports.
