Ryujin: Ibaraki is home to the Ryujin Otsuribashi, the longest pedestrian suspension bridge on Japan’s main island. The bridge stands a staggering 100 meters over Ryujin Gorge making it Japan’s highest bungy experience. The Japanese characters for Ryujin stand for dragon god, which is reflected in the main pillars that are designed to have a dragon feel.
Walking across the bridge is enough to give you a small thrill but with Bungy Japan our platform is located inside the bridge below the walking deck so for those not brave enough to take the jump we grant access to said platform for XXXXX so you can get a taste of the pure rush the jumpers feel.
While you’re in the area visit Takyu Shrine, try the local buckwheat noodles (soba), or go for a hike in the abundance of mountains surrounding the bridge.
But most of all the area’s highlight is Ryujin Bungy , which has become Japan’s premier bungy jump, and one of the most exciting experiences of any sort nation wide. Test your will and strap yourself in for Bungy Japan’s biggest thrill!
Itsukimura: At 66 meters above the Kuma River the Kobae Bridge is Bungy Japan’s 2nd highest bridge and certifiably hair-raising! The town of Itsukimura was completely relocated and several formidably high bridges were constructed in preparation for construction of a new dam. Problem is the plan for the dam was scrapped so that left Itsukimura with a brand new town, and Bungy Japan with a staggeringly high bridge to put to use! Jump for joy? Oh yes! It’ll be a BIG jump!
The Itsukimura area is accessed by a scenic drive from any of Kyushu’s urban centers that many motorcycling and touring enthusiasts flock to (not to mention car companies filming TV commercials!).

Once you’re done with all the outdoor activities we suggest you try the delectable local deep fried deer!

Kaiun Bungy is nestled in the heart of Japan’s historic Nara region and located near the Chougosonshiji Temple and the base of Mount Shigi. The region has long been the cultural and spiritual heart of Japan.
The temple was founded by Prince Shotoku during the Asuka Period (592-710) Because the temple is related to the tiger of the Chinese Zodiac, which is used for the calendar, time and direction, the grounds of the temple are filled with figures of tigers. At the entrance, Fukutora, the world’s largest papier-mache tiger, greets visitors.
