Ever heard of shower climbing? Essentially the Japanese version of canyoning, participants wade, swim and scramble as they follow a mountain stream from lower to higher elevations. Shower climbing gives you the chance to immerse yourself in pristine natural surroundings and fresh forest air as you swim, slide, float and dive into the cool, crystal clear waters filtering down from the mountains above. A range of courses are available for elementary school age children to adults, and our experienced guides will select an area that suits your experience and ability level, including bypass routes for children when necessary. Come and enjoy a relaxing & refreshing escape from the summer heat!
