You will hardly be able to believe that there is such a natural paradise just 90 mins from the center of Tokyo.

This is one of our most popular base locations, both for the courses that can be fully enjoyed by complete beginners, and for the fabulously tranquil environment that allows you to completely refresh.

The limestone mountains provide some great canyoning courses with a fantastic range of slides, jumps and rappels.

If you're looking for more adventurous, adrenaline-pumping courses, check out Minakami Canyoning.

Minakami also offers BBQ's, lodge and riverside glamping options as well as a number of other adventures such as rafting, packrafting, MTB,and bungy jumping.....

World class adventure just outside Tokyo


Okutama opens in mid-April and goes through until late October. As the area receives little snow, most of the courses are available all season. If you are looking to do more adventurous canyoning or would like a range of activities then we recommend Canyons Minakami.
