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 one spectator per group (extra fees apply) 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. It’s no surprise that countless celebrities have taken the plunge and several major commercials have featured the bridge. Test your will, and come experience for yourself one of Japan’s biggest thrills!
