    The opportunity to experience the countryside of Tokyo was really quite appealing. It was even more appealing with this incredible offer!

    The whole group enjoyed this incredible experience! The whole experience actually began when we started making our way to Okutama on the train. From the beginning, we were impressed by the professionalism of the coaches/instructors and the English-speaking guide.

    The excitement began with the suiting up. While the water was incredibly cold, we quickly grew accustomed to the temperature as we made our way upstream, encountering mini waterfalls which we had to climb up, along the way. While tough, even the youngest among us (9 years old) was able to make it through the course. We only turned around at the last one as the water level was a little high and deemed too difficult. The coaches helped by guiding and also taking our pictures for us with our camera so that we could concentrate on fully enjoying the experience. The more able among us were brought up some slightly more challenging routes at points so, in the end, everybody had an amazing experience that was suitable for all abilities.

    After climbing up, we had to make our way down...which was equally challenging but satisfying.

    After arriving at the end, we made our way back to the house where we changed and a BBQ fire had been started up. The smell and the warmth of the charcoal fire was truly welcoming as it was a little cold after our river experience. The amount of food that was prepared was truly phenomenal and totally satisfying - some ice cold beer, soda, plenty of meat, onigiri. vegetables, yaki soba...etc etc. After such a workout, the lunch that was provided was definitely a wonderful reward!

    All in all, a wonderful experience and will definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a little adventure while in Tokyo!
