TOSHINARI OTA

On the road, following rivers around the world.
I had kept the river guide lifestyle
Just like rivers,
My life wound around the bend and flowed into Kamikawa
Rivers have the energy for people
I want everyone to feel how wonderful it is to play in the outdoors through rafting
and how beautiful the rivers around Daisetsu mountain are 
as the rivers have different expressions by the season.
