Wakasa's streams have a long season and beautiful surroundings, with the fresh greens of spring to the changing leaves of autumn. The valleys of Wakasa, where mountains and the sea are close by and the terrain is often steep, are lined with a series of easy-to-climb 5 to 10 meter waterfalls. Waterfall climbing gives you a great sense of accomplishment as you climb to the top while being showered with clear, fresh water. Experienced professional guides will take care of your safety and ensure that everyone can enjoy an exhilarating and safe trip up the river. If you have time we suggest you stay overnight in an old private house in Kumagawajuku town, a Japanese Heritage site. You will experience the food, history, and people of Wakasa more deeply. Please contact us if you would like to include a stay in your trip. Private tours are also available. <Pricing> Number of participants 2 persons 20,000 yen/person 3 persons 18,000 yen/person 4 or more 15,000 yen/person
