Tone River Rafting

The Tone River was the host for the rafting world cup qualifiers in 2001. It is the location for Japans top rafting race event, the "Minakami Extreme" and is well know by rafting guides all over the world. The Spring raft section provides many different sceneries, from majestic mountain backdrops, rugged tight canyon sections and the odd tranquil section through rural famland.
