    First of all, a really exciting thing to do is rafting. The canyons of Minakami in Gunma Prefecture are a perfect place for this kind of fun because you can find both half-day and full day rafting courses.

    A must-do is paragliding and the best way to do it is near Fuji-San! You can go to the Asagiri plateau and you’ll find different schools with different types of flights, but all of them will offer you the greatest view of the area and of Mount Fuji! To be sure that you’ll enjoy we recommend you to book for a whole day tour because sometimes the clouds can be hiding behind the mountains.
