Spring Rafting« Back to list
Each section of white water has its own characteristics and our base at Akagi offers the chance to get another take on rapids on the Tone rapids. When the water is high, the section of river around Akagi has a really strong flow which makes for some great rapids. It is also a visually spectacular area, and if you can keep your eyes of the next obstacle long enough, you will be treated to a fantastic view of the surrounding scenery.
