Bungy Japan Thrills
I've always wanted to do something that was slightly crazy. Bungy jumping in the UK always seemed mundane to me because there was no outrageous crazy place to jump from. It was always over crash mats.
One of the things that I wanted to do when I came to live here was to find out where I could bungy in Japan. At first I could only get boring ones. Then I found this!
So this company have several different jump heights over Gunma and Ibaraki. There are also more sites to jump at in different locations. Check the website for more information.
It was such a simple booking process. I emailed them and spoke to them. They are bilingual. They were able to advise me on what I needed to know, and they were extremely friendly. I booked well in advance and the best part is that you don't need to pay immediately.
Whilst travel was a little over two hours to the site, when I got there I was greeted immediately. You can check in on machines that weigh you at the same time because you are not allowed to jump above or below certain rates.
They give you a ticket, you pay, and you can also order professional photographs to be taken. They will give you them on a special disc after the jump.
You make your way to the jump site and your safety is paramount. They double and triple check everything. They give you sound advice.
This company was set up as part of giving the tourists something different in Japan to do, so most of the staff are multilingual and are able to speak English extremely well.
Once you have made your jump, you're pulled to safety, and you collect your photographs and jump certificate. This certificate gives you a ¥2000 (approximately) discount should you wish to ever jump again at that jumping spot, and a ¥1000 discount at any other jumping site.
The price is expensive, but the whole entire experience is nerve racking and completely thrilling. If you are a thrill seeker, then this is definitely for you. If you love laughing at your friends fear, then the viewing spot is for you.
The areas that the jumps are located in are extremely beautiful areas. It's worth making a day out of it.
So what are you waiting for? Go give yourself some thrills on a jumpy day out.
