Company ProfileAbout us
Thank you for taking a look at our web site. We will mark our 18th anniversary of our activity since we started business rafting at Kumagawa in 1993.
Back in those days, we were desperate to let people know the fun of rafting, though we did not exactly know how.
With our wish to offer people the most enjoyable and safe rafting experience, we had done rafting trainings in New Zealand and had trained in Gifu on how to do emergency care. Never forgetting our original intentions, we will keep on trying to do our best to make this activity even better. Thank you.
