NAOC Rafting; Canyoning, Boat Rides
The Kinugawa River is particularly well-known for the dramatic beauty of its natural river valley. Here, an array of water activities allows visitors the opportunity to feel at one with nature. NAOC Rafting Tours, led by experienced guides, provides safe rafting experiences. The trip carries rafters past various waterfalls and cascades, which can only be conquered through the cooperation of everyone in the boat. Canyoning is a thrilling river sport giving participants firsthand experience of the outdoors. Canyoning guests dive into waterfall pools and glide down rocky slides. The Kinugawa River Boat Ride is a captain-steered, 40-minute boat trip down the Kinugawa River. It is a wonderful and refreshing way to experience the river valley scenery often with a splash.
At this moment, travel to Japan is still not possible for foreigners. However, once travel opens up, these activities will be a welcoming experience.
