Took the long (in terms of time) train trip out to Nagatoro on a beautiful day, looking forward spending time on the river, planning to do both routes. When we arrived, we were told that I unfortunately today they are only running a short rote. That turned out to be about 150m along the river at snail pace and back a little quicker, with a boat guide who never stopped talking to allow anyone to enjoy the tranquility. Not good enough and very disappointing. Not sure how you check to make sure that they are running proper trips on the day you visit.

The "rafting" in the title is a bit misleading -- it's just a boat ride without any sense of adventure... The autumn colours are nice around mid to late November. The rock formation is also interesting. You can sample some local food after the boat ride.

I was looking forward to the thrill of the white water, but it wasn't very rough at all. Nonetheless, everyone in the boat ooh'd and ahh'd as we went through the "whitewater" parts. It's a pretty quick ride, but one you must do while in Nagatoro as the river and the rocks are the main attraction. I'll recommend it as a fun time, but it's a short and pretty tame ride, so set your expectations accordingly!

The cool wind from the river and the color of Fall season made me a wonderful moment to remember. There are 3 courses for Nagatoro river white water rafting. I chose A course the easy one that proper to everyone including children.

I always wanted to try white water rafting but never had the chance yet. Until this opportunity come across. We helped in a local matsuri as volunteers, so we were provided free rides. It was absolutely worth the money. ;D Seriously, it is a very nice river, the flow goes a bit rough at some places but apart from that, it is a pleasant ride. Far from true white water rafting, so I still want to try that, but for first experience, it was super. My Japanese wasn't enough to fully understand the guides but they looked really entertaining.
