All our guides have training in Advanced Wilderness First Aid and Rescue 3 International.

We train our guides not only to take you safely down the river but also to maximize your fun.

We choose the best section which is safe enough for the youngest but enjoyable for adults.

Our Focus on Quality

  • Quality Equipment
  • Quality Service
  • Quality Experiences

We are the rafting company in Japan, and we provides all the necessary equipments to our guests. Despite the significant costs of having and maintaining this equipment, we believe it vital to the safety or comfort of our guests in a paddling climate such as ours. Our off-river time is almost entirely dedicated to regular maintenance and repair of our equipment, all of which is done on site, by us.

We are operating our activities with quality service which is scheduled in our day plan that makes perfect and comfortable of yours adventure journey.

None of our trips are ever exactly the same. Because the combination of river conditions and group dynamics always differ slightly, we make little adjustments in the way we operate our trips so that each individual gets the best possible experience. Our ability to 'micro-customize' comes from years of experience on these rivers, and is the professional signature that we proudly apply to all of our river trips.
