Logging in the mountains of the Kii peninsula has been a major industry for centuries as rafts. The skills and techniques of these "logging river runners" has been preserved in the Kitayama village for over 600 years. Now log rafts are used to transport thrill-seekers through the scenic Dorokyo Gorge, part of the Yoshino-Kumano National Park. Log rafts are strictly checked for safety standards, while guests are required to wear life jackets at all times.
