For your reference, there had been a longtime discussion about a dam construction project in the Kawabe River, where our special route is offered, but the plan was called off in 2009. The Kawabe River, the largest tributary of the Kumagawa River system, boasts of the clearest river water in Japan, and we are extremely happy that its prime rafting territory has been protected from the project. We guarantee that it’s worth trying, even if you take a day off from your work to check out this tour.
Clear streams come in rainy and typhoon seasons.
