Let's Enjoy Together

recommendation
The best of Japan torrents in Kochi Oboke Half-day course become gentler than Tokushima Koboke course in Yoshino-River. It's recommended to beginners who say that still afraid of thrilling torrents. It's in the upper area in Yoshino-River, so water is clean, clear to the bottom on a river and seen. If you take a boat, you feel like swimming by all means. There even is distance of a little less than about 1 hour by car in Kochi-shi, so Katsurahama and sightseeing of Tosa's bonito cuisine and combination are outstanding. Please experience "Shikoku-Saburo" in Japan 3 large rampageous river first.

Comment from CEO

The president
A point in the Kochi Yoshino River Half-day Rafting I'll recommend is that's neither too long with about 3.5 km not too short.
That's also the length good for the customer who would like to enjoy in 1 day exactly, rafting and sightseeing.
A torrent point is concentrated in the course, and it's possible to enjoy itself without getting tired.
The course where much all except for a torrent is also charming.
Please come to from one person to a group with your friends and family to get exercise to the fullest!
