Protecting Tokyo's Water Sources! SDGs Experience Tour

In this activity, participants pick up trash while rafting down Mitake Gorge in Tokyo's Ome City. The instructor, who leads them through the rough five-kilometer course from the upper to the lower reaches of the gorge, was the second-place winner of the World Rafting Championships.
No rafting experience is necessary, and participation is possible from age six.
As the river flows through its beautiful natural surroundings, it sweeps waste into the sea. 70% of the garbage found at sea is said to come from rivers, and this activity is a significant first step in achieving SDG 14, "Life below water," which aims to "conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development."
The activity is also great for team building, with each team lifting heavy garbage together while competing for the largest amount of collected waste.
After rafting, participants can soak in Okutama's hot springs, enjoy meals, and attend a seminar on local cuisine or Tokyo's water resources and environment in Okutama-ji, an onsen (hot spring) hotel.
