book button Head out with local guides to go rafting on Hakuba Valley’s Himekawa (Princess River). A technical class 2 whitewater river with great views of the Hakuba mountain range. Both morning and afternoon tours are available and we welcome big groups to join in. After a whitewater ride down the river, a relaxing soak in one of Hakuba’s mineral onsen is included in the price.

Please be aware that rafting in Japan gets more exciting than this, and outside the recommended season this river can be quite tame and is not recommended for thrill-seekers but more for families with children/first-time rafters.
