Nagatoro Ravine

Mountain stream activity:

Nagatoro Ravine is a ravine of the scenes of the upheaval bench of 6 km located in the upstream of the Sumida River flowing through the neighborhood of Asakusa of Tokyo. The layers of rock in particular are the beauty spots where the strangely-shaped rocks form a deep water with large-scale crustal movements as its reason. Various outdoor sports using the flow of the ravine are pleasant, and rafting, a Japanese style ship with a guide in it, goes down the fast flowing stream, which is the local specialty. Pick-up buses leave and arrive on time. Besides it, other entertainments using rafts and canoes as a river tour are available too.
