‘Timber’ rafting on Kitayama River, Kitayama village, Wakayama Pref.
1st May - 30th September, 2017 | Kitayama River, Kitayama village, Wakayama
Timber was a traditional industry of Wakayama and logs were transported to areas by floating them downstream along the Kitayama River. This activity was modified into a rafting tourist attraction in 1979, and now attracts more than 8,000 visitors a year. A 30-meter raft made of logs is steered by an experienced raftsman, who will guide you on an exciting 70-minute ride along the river. The raft passes through attractive scenery and sections of white-water rapids that should make the journey unforgettable. official website ›› http://kankou.vill.kitayama.wakayama.jp/ikada/
