Ducky


For those looking for a real challenge, try a Ducky (inflatable kayak) Tour. Sit in a small two-person raft, and have your own kayak oar to steer with. This allows you to get closer to the river and the force of the water, the river seems more powerful than it does when sitting in a large raft. Under the watchful eye of our trained professional staff, we will show you the necessary techniques etc. needed to run rivers and support you on your downriver Ducky tour.

What to Wear

You may be wondering what to bring on your HANAZONO whitewater rafting adventure, and for good reason. You will be fitted out with a dry or wet suit but as we run rafting tours rain or shine you are likely to get wet, so it’s a good idea to be prepared no matter what kind of river tour you have planned. 
We recommend that you wear loose fitting clothes, avoid skirts, jeans and any material that does not stretch. Please also keep in mind the river water can remain cold throughout the year so please ensure you bring an extra layer of clothing.

  • Clothing - We recommend a short sleeved shirt and shorts in Mid Summer (mid July – late August) and a long sleeved shirt and long pants in Spring and Autumn.
  • Glasses - If you wear glasses, we can provide you with a string so you don’t lose them on the river.
  • Contact lenses - Please either change to glasses or only wear disposable contact lenses. You may also wear goggles over you contact lenses.
  • Watches/Jewelry - Please remove all watches, jewelry before you arrive.
  • Shoes - You will be fitted out with river booties for your trip, there is no need for socks.

What to Bring

  • A full change of clothes & a towel - You will get wet!
  • Cameras & electronic devices - Please do not bring any cameras, electronic devices with you on the river. We have professional photographers that will take action shots of you tour. Photo CD’s are available for purchase for ¥2,000.
  • Other Valuables - When bringing any valuables please remember to store them in the lockers provided
