The Original Japanese Pioneers in Excellent Canyoning


Tone River rapids rafting also available


If thrills, white water rafting, and outstanding outdoor fun are your thing, check out the Canyons company, based on the Tone River in Gunma Prefecture’s Minakami Town. Owned by a New Zealander with a quarter-century of experience, they are the original canyoning pioneers in Japan, offering a wide range of tours since 1998. 

Unique to the lineup of packages is the snow canyoning tour, reacquainting you with powder snow in epic style. Alternatively, tame the Tone torrents with rapids rafting from April to October, and especially in spring when water levels peak.

Breaking new boundaries and borders for beginners and epic-level adventurers alike. 



Access: From Tokyo Station, take the Joetsu Shinkansen to Jomo-Kogen Station (about one hour three minutes). Pickup by bus is available from the station.
