MISHIMA, Shizuoka Prefecture--A new attraction here is offering those who love dizzying heights and glorious views of Mount Fuji a thrill ride through the air that is hard to beat.

Riders wearing a harness tethered to a cable traverse the valley near Mishima Skywalk, the nation’s longest pedestrian-only suspension bridge, which spans 400 meters.

The departing leg of the zip line is 300 meters long, while the return trip is 260 meters.

It is an attraction at the Forest Adventure facility, which opened on July 26 as part of the Mishima Skywalk premises.

The new offerings, which include a log house with a cafe, are aimed at enticing visitors, who formerly would come just to cross the suspension bridge, to stay for a longer time.

Forest Adventure, which originated in France, is based on the concept of a “treetop park in harmony with nature.”

It is open to fourth-graders and older, or those who are at least 140 centimeters in height.

The charge for Forest Adventure is 3,600 yen ($32), and those who will only ride the zip line need to pay 1,800 yen.

The admission to Mishima Skywalk is also required.
