The river bugging is looks like "water's strider"
It is possible to move around on the water's surface. feel like a water strider.
You can try this River bugging only here in Japan!

we use Fin and Hand paddle for river bugging, so it will be easy to move on the water surface.

About a tour: River bugging
tPlease come to the Base Camp at the Seta River by the scheduled time.
※ Registration will commence from 15 minutes before the scheduled meeting time.

All participating guests will fill out the necessary forms and change into bathers etc. After changing clothes, the equipment to be used on the tour will be distributed.
When everyone has arrived, our company car will come to pick up everyone and take them to the start point.
After we arrive at the start point, first we will go through procedures for safety, how to use the equipment, how to recover after being flipped over etc.
After the explanation we jump in the river and do some practice!
After practicing we slowly float down the river playing games as we approach the rapids!

Before long we will reach the rapids! You might be spinning a lot, so hold on tight! The water's surface is right beneath you so you get to experience the full force of the river! If you don't want to flip over, try to avoid the big waves; on the hand if you want to try to flip over, try crashing through them!

If you can't get back on your river bugging by yourself, the group guide will help you. After we pass the first waves, it's calm again until the next set. We can also join together and take on the waves together!
After the rapids, the river basically becomes calm again.
As we repeat the game from earlier, we head towards the finish point.
After the tour has finished, we will take a commemorative photo.
From the finishing area, we will return by car to the gathering place. After changing clothes the group breaks up.
After the tour, the photo we took can be downloaded from the facebook.
If you don't want your photo to appear on the website, please inform staff.<m(__)m>
