    早朝5時にホテルでピックアップしてもらい、車で45分ほどで目的の湖へ。ガイドの方にインストラクションを受けた後、誰もいない湖面に中学生の息子と二人で漕ぎ出しました。 この日は風もなく、鏡のような水面に日の出の光、周囲の山、自分たちの姿まで映り込む景色に圧倒され、ハワイ島の山頂で満点の星と雲のような天の川を見たときと同じような心の震えを感じました。 聞こえるのは自分たちの漕ぐパドルがたてる水音...

    A five minute drive from the Minakami Interchange. A thrilling bungee jump experience provided by Bungy Japan using the Suwakyo-ohashi Bridge in the town of Minakami. Bungee jumping is a sport which requires jumpers to face themselves, and its origins lie in a coming of age ceremony practiced in the nation of Vanuatu. The sense of accomplishment one can receive is particularly strong here at the Suwakyo-ohashi Bridge, which provides a 42 meter drop into a beautiful gorge. Minakami is readily accessible from Tokyo and on weekends, large numbers of spectators also gather here, creating a lively atmosphere for jumpers.

    Awesome place to Bungy with great view all around.Had multiple jumps and it was great fun.The Tanigawadake Autumn view is an added bonus.

The farm's shop sells fruit for taking home as gifts and souvenirs.
