Anyone who has a serious medical condition, has suffered some type of injury in the past or has any doubts at all regarding their physical condition and how it could be affected by bungy jumping should first consult a doctor before booking.
With certain pre-existing injuries (such as shoulder dislocations) our staff will be able to advise you of certain ways to jump that will minimise the risk of aggravating the injury – the jumpmaster will make a decision on the day as to whether a customer is fit to jump. Bungy Japan does not accept any responsibility for the aggravation of pre-existing injuries that arise from bungy jumping.
Other objects must be light-weight and not have any sharp points or edges. Our customers’ safety is our number one concern and ultimately, the jump master reserves the right to disallow any object from being used during a jump. We thank you for your understanding.
