After the typhoon coming through earlier in the week we had a return to high water that was enjoyed by all this afternoon. Although the Yoshinogawa offers world class rafting at all levels throughout the season, high water gives the extra padding required to really let lose and start looking for the “bigger” lines. In this afternoon that lead to the venerable Hidesan with a crew of six looking for adventure to enjoy the benefits of rafting into Iwahara Rapid, and swimming out the bottom. Not to be shown up, Hirosan managed to exit the raft with the majority of his crew a minute later. For those of us keeping things contained there was still no lack of water in and around the boat today.
A huge thanks to those who came out on the river with us today
Today was another excellent day on the river. As the season starts to change we are starting to see more colors in the foliage around the Oboke Gorge. However, despite the slow coming of winter it was a beautiful day with a return to summer temperatures, making for many refreshing swimming opportunities.
The special thing about todays rescue project was I was the one getting rescued. We had nine rafts but my team were the only ones that flipped upside down. It was a lonely feeling but I am hungry for revenge. Big thank-you to all the customers who made todays tour so fun. Lets play Koboke Rafting together again.
