Traditional Log Rafting

This is the only place in Japan where tourists can experience logging rafts. Feel the soul-stirring paddling of rafters as you go down the swift currents of the Kitayama River. Its origin is in lumber transportation in which felled lumber was assembled into rafts and brought to the mouth of the river. This practice was done for over 600 years.
