Rafting in NagatoroEdit

Kanute, a company based in Nagatoro, Saitama, offers a rafting package for 6000 yen per person. Kanute is located within walking distance of Nagatoro train station, so it is easy to get there by train, although it does take about 3 hours from Tsukuba (possibly a bit less if you take a shinkansen from Tokyo or Ueno to Kumagaya). If you go during a time when the traffic flow is expected to be normal (i.e. not Golden Week), you can probably get there by car in about an hour and a half. (Joban Expressway -- Tokyo Gaikan -- Kanetsu Expressway)



  • The water level is quite low right now, so we had a fairly leisurely drift down the river with only a few "scary" moments. The guides were extremely good and they gave us a lesson and safety instructions before we started. During the colder seasons (including now), they will lend you a wetsuit. They will also lend you a life jacket and a helmet. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who is interested in doing rafting in Japan. -- Shaney 15:04, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
