New for 2024 is a relaxing rafting experience in Jozankei, one of Hokkaido's most popular hot spring resorts! Unlike whitewater rafting, this is a gentle rafting near Nishiki Bridge. This means that beginners, children, and dogs can enjoy rafting together (children must be accompanied by an adult).
While enjoying the natural beauty of the valley as it turns to summer, jump into the river, look for creatures, and enjoy the calm river rafting. Enjoy a peaceful river cruise.
