Only in the spring! Whitewater rafting in Sapporo! With the late arrival of spring in Sapporo the Toyohira River of Jozankei becomes a famous spot for rafting as the melting mountain snow gives the river a boost. Niseko is also famous for rafting, but you can actually enjoy rafting in the central area of Sapporo City.
Have a thrilling experience splashing and paddling through deep, sharp canyons. How about an active spring day that is different from a relaxing day at Jozankei? A day trip to KOGANEYU hot springs is included to relieve your fatigue after a full day of fun.
