Nametoko Valley

Canyoning is a river sport from France that allows you to full enjoy valleys with your whole body—jump into the waterfall basin, allow the water current to carry you, and abseil.

Nametoko Valley is a picturesque spot nestled in the Onigajo mountain range in the south west of Shikoku. It is also one of the origins of the Shimanto River. There are many places to slide on the vast expanses of smooth granite, only found in a few areas in Japan, making this one of the country’s leading canyoning spots. The Yukiwa Waterfall was chosen as one of the top 100 waterfalls in Japan. There’s nothing quite like the thrill of sliding down the waterfalls of this breathtakingly picturesque location.

Instructors carefully explain how to enjoy canyoning, so even beginners can give it a go without any worries.
