    What to Expect

    If it is your first time canyoning and you are up for some thrills, then this is the place to start. It is also perfect for groups with lots of different thrill levels! It's easy to access and a short walk from where the bus drops you. Fox is an incredibly beautiful canyon with some great jumps, slides and waterfalls. You can enjoy amazing features at all water levels.

    Our professional guides have the very highest levels of skill and safety. They run incredibly entertaining tours too.

    The Minakami Base brings a slice of overseas style to Japan - a large wooden deck, a cafe, bar, and backpacker-style lodge; all under one roof. Relax and unwind in complete comfort after your adventures.

    This is a unique outdoor experience. Canyoning was so much fun! I really enjoyed sliding down the waterfalls. Dressing in the Canyoning gear is fun too. Staff where very energetic and gave clear instructions which made me comfortable. Grab a burger at the Canyons cafe....More
