Hi, I am planning on coming over from Japan from Feb-March and am looking for a few fellow paddlers to show me around. I have been paddling for a little over 7 months and can do a class 4-4 plus rapid (still challenging for me though). I have paddled in my hometown of Colorado, on the New, Potomac, Yough., Snake, and a few places around Japan.

Any an all info on camping, spots, rivers, and trips going or coming would be greatly appreciated.

If you are in Tokyo, call WIZ-NATURE(0428-76-2603) canoe club. Some members of this club come to New Zealand every summer, so they have good information. And I guess they should have Graham Charles' famous river guide book of NZ.
