After 20 years of research in the Kii Peninsula, Canyons Kiho Base opened in July 2022.
We are super excited to be bringing our world-class style of canyoning experiences to the Kansai region, with access from Nagoya and Osaka within three hours.
Canyoning will be the main activity we offer, with Level 2-3 courses available from summer.
We will be adding higher-level canyoning and other adventures in the near future, SO WATCH THIS SPACE!
The Kiho area has amazing rivers and waterfalls and an awesome "inaka" (countryside) vibe with warm locals, great food and picturesque scenery.
This is the perfect adventure escape if you're from Osaka, Kyoto or Nagoya areas.
Kiho is located in the southernmost reaches of Mie Prefecture on the border with Wakayama. The area is blessed with magnificent mountains, lush forests and amazing rivers and waterfalls.
Nearby, the Kumano River offers boat rides, there is hiking on the Kumano Kodo, plenty of historic sites and some of the best seafood in Japan.
Make the most of your trip by staying at the fabulous Hisetsuno waterfall campground, or at one of the nearby guest houses or hotels in Shingu.
