Photo Journal: Whitewater wonder

Visitors raft down the snowmelt-swollen Shiribetsu River in the town of Niseko, Hokkaido, in this recent photo. The river rafting course runs through the foothills of Mount Yotei for about 11 kilometers from the town of Kutchan to Niseko. "It was fun to feel the nature throughout my body," said 22-year-old Sapporo resident Saya Mikami. According to rafting operator NAC Niseko Adventure Centre, the quantity of water in the river this year is similar to the annual average. The rafting service will be available until early June.
