Working as a canyon guide, you tend to get bored of guiding the same canyons day in and day out. So when a fellow guide asked if I wanted to check out a new possible course, I jumped at the opportunity. We met up outside of Tokyo and made the long drive to the Chichibu/Yamanashi border. Exploring new canyons involves a lot of internet research and map reading before you get wet. Most times you arrive not knowing what to expect. This time was no different; instead of the expected 5 meter falls, our first decent was a 25 meter beautiful double waterfall. We spent the day immersed in moss covered rock and cascading lines of water.
