Ohaiyoo gozaimasu......if anyone is interested in getting a great story on adventure sports in Japan, my big brother runs his own outdoor adventure company in the mountains about 3 hours inland from Tokyo on the border of Niigata, Nagano and Gunma.....rafting, canyoning, mountain biking, snow mobiling, back-country skiiing/snowboarding, caving and a monthly full moon party thrown into the mix during the summer season - amazing place!
