What to Wear

You may be wondering what to bring on your Hanazono water 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 your 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.

Getting Fitted Out

Once you are ready, our guides will instruct you on how to get fitted out. Below is the standard for the majority of our river trips.


Protect your head from impact.

②Life jacket

It has strong buoyancy and you will not drown even if you fall off the boat.


Tethered type waterproof suit. The wrists, ankles, and neck are made of thin rubber, and the zipper around the body is waterproof. However, since it is not tailor-made, it may be flooded due to the individual body's differences or too much movement.

④River shoes

Shoes made of the same materials as wetsuits. They have a mechanism that keeps your foot warm even when they're wet.
