Sorachi River's Kokutai Course 空知川国体コース is one of Japan's premier natural canoe slalom courses, made famous by the 1989 National Sports Festival 国民体育大会, as the location for the national slalom event. Now popular among river rafting companies, the area is still a magnet for paddlers from around Japan. In an open deck canoe, the course is a solid high-stakes Class III run. It requires dropping a pushy set at the outset, followed by threading around two gigantic boulders, finishing with a tricky 1.5m high waterfall. Dumping anywhere en route will likely see paddlers washed down the entirety of the course. See the full overview on Hokkaido Wilds: https://hokkaidowilds.org/water/sorachi-kawa-kokutai-course
