Spring flood season (April to June)
It was around this time that the rafting race world tournament Asia/Oceania regional qualifying rounds were held. When the snow melts and the water rises, the Tone River becomes a world-class torrent. Big waves and speed will get your adrenaline pumping. But thawed water is cold. At Jagsport, we use equipment that pursues comfort, such as a custom-made 5mm wetsuit jacket. After the tour, we also have free hot shower facilities.

Exhilarating summer rafting (July to October)
Every year, the amount of water calms down in the summer, and rafting on the Suwakyo course. The time on the boat goes down 4 kilometers in about 70 minutes. In addition to the torrent point, Suwa Gorge at this time of year has plenty of places to play, such as natural waiter sliders, river surfing, and 8m jump rocks. This is also the time when there are many rafting tour participants.

We hold seasonal outdoor tours!

Nice to meet you, this is Atsushi Kano, the owner guide.
It was more than 20 years ago now, but at the time I was a member of the university\'s exploration club, and I was thinking of starting an outdoor guide company in the future. During my university days, I walked around mountains, streams, rivers, snow, and caves all over Japan, set up tents and held training camps in various places. When I decided to go independent and thought about where to base myself, I decided on Minakami Town in Gunma Prefecture based on my experience traveling around Japan. The charm of this town is, above all, nature. The outdoor possibilities in this town are second to none. Because there is a hot spring, you can enjoy high quality activities according to the four seasons throughout the year. Moreover, access from Tokyo is very convenient. Even now, I am glad that I chose Minakami.
Minakami Town is the perfect place to enjoy nature and enjoy the outdoors.
Why not take this opportunity to get in touch with Minakami\'s great nature, bathe in hot springs, and refresh your mind and body!

    スーザンさんにガイドいただき、ラフティング体験しました。 水量の少ない時期、ということでしたが、以前別の川でラフティング体験した時よりも激流で、十分に楽しめました! 車で片道3時間でしたが、ここまで来る価値があったなと思います。 高いところ...

    9月に行ったんですけど台風の大雨の次の日で、川の水量がとても多くて激し目のタフティングを体験できました。インストラクターの方も気さくに話しかけてくれてとても楽しかったです。 また春先の雪解けの時期に行きたいと思いました。
