    From the Oyahana Bridge to Iwadatami, from Iwadatami to Takasago Bridge, and both courses combined create three boat trips to choose from on the Nagatoro River White Water Rafting which operates five times daily from around March 10 to the beginning of December. Reservations need to be made at some point between 30 days before and 12 o’clock on the day before the scheduled boat trip, although if there are space places on the boat can be booked 30 minutes before departure. They also have special service boats such as the poka poka kotatsu boat which runs only in the winter.

Saitama Main Areas


Eclipsed by neighboring Tokyo, Saitama is often branded as the sleepy suburbs. However, look a little deeper and you’ll uncover quaint towns bursting with history and crafts from the kurazukuri Edo-period clay houses of Kawagoe to the ancient tree-enveloped temples of Chichibu.
