Rafting – Hidaka area

Join HOA and come rafting on one of the many amazing rivers in Hokkaido, Japan. Choose from a variety of our action-packed adventures tailored to suit your ability and location.
The season kicks off in April when the melting snow brings high flows and a fast a furious river. Can’t make it in the spring? Don’t worry. There is still excitement to be had all through the summer and fall seasons. With adrenaline pumping runs and awe inspiring nature, you are sure to have the trip of a lifetime !

HOA also offers Family rafting trips ! So, don’t feel like you have to miss-out just because you have kids ! Children as young as 5 can take part in a rafting experience with the rest of the family. For Family Packages, we plan a smoother, more predictable run to ensure the safety of the younger rafters onboard. In some cases, we may even put more than one guide in a boat to provide support. This package is sure to have plenty of excitement for the whole family!

Choose AM/PM or rivers from the schedule below. We’ve got all the necessary equipment and no experience is necessary. So, come out, suit up, and away you go!
