River Guide
Bishnu
The Yoshino River(Yoshinogawa) called "One of the wildest river in Japan". It is one of the best rafting spots not only in Japan but also in the world. The attraction of the half-day course is that you can easily enjoy Japan's most powerful rapids. The sense of accomplishment after overcoming a large wave is unmatched! By car, it is a 20-minute drive from the Ikawa-Ikeda IC on the Tokushima Expressway. By train, it is a 1-minute walk from Awakawaguchi Station on the JR Dosan Line.

There are a lot of mini-games, and I had a lot of fun even on the half-day course. I was satisfied with the many photos I took. It might be difficult, but I wanted to buy it if there was a video, and I thought it would be better. Thank you for a good time.
