who are we?
Hi! We are so glad you found your way here.
Niyodo Adventure is owned by us, Norihiro and Zoé. We are a Japanadian couple passionate about the outdoors and we would be so stoked to show you guys around our little bit of paradise.
What inspired us to start Niyodo Adventure is to see the Nakatsu gorge and the Niyodo river. We thought : " Someone should start a company here! It's so beautiful and easy to access! ''. And so we did.
With more than 10 years experience on and in the water, you are in good hands! You could have spotted Hiro working in the last 7 summers at Happy Raft rafting the Yoshinoriver. And you could have also seen him at one of the following:
Rangitata Rafts, Peel Forest, New Zealand

what is canyoning with us?
Canyoning is the sport of travelling through canyons. Our trips include :
- Cliff jumping;
- Swimming in the canyon's water flows;
- Waterfall sliding;
what is pack-rafting with us?
A pack-raft is an inflatable kayak. It is much more stable and way easier to carry. Our pack-rafting trips require participants to control their own boat ( 1 person per boat ). We go through grade 2 sections and we do go to a few rapids. But *you do not need to have prior kayaking experience* - You must, however, know how to swim and be comfortable in the water. Flips do happen but in a safe environment.
