If you're the outdoorsy-type, then Japan's a great place to visit, and Sunburst Adventures is just one tour operator willing to quench your thirst for adventure. Located just 2 hours outside Tokyo, their 6-kilometer river-rafting trip is safe and fun for the whole family. A bit of whitewater, some tranquil drifting, and you can even jump overboard for a quick and refreshing dip along the way! Sunburst Adventures's genki crew are adept at getting you down the river, but also make the ride fun and even a bit exciting along the way. Whether it's bouncing over whitecaps, wave surfing or splashing around, joining Sunburst Adventures is a day well spent. An early-day trip also includes a lunch stop along the way. - Stephen Lebovits
