Some say there is no courage without fear. Come and test your courage at Ryujin Bungy, the highest bungee jumping site in Japan. Only the most reckless ones can jump from this 100m high blue bridge located in Ibaraki prefecture, 2 hours from Tokyo. No worries though, if you don’t want to jump, you can still admire the beautiful scenery offered by the surroundings.
After hours of whining, I finally put aside my fear of height and jumped thanks to the warm encouragement of the Ryujin Bungy crew. If you are a beginner, here is some advice they shared with us:
- Don't look down
- Don't close your eyes
- Don't jump backwards
- And do jump after the first countdown!
Bungee jumping is definitely something to do once in a lifetime – adrenaline aficionados will love it. And you, would you be able to look down before you jump?
3, 2, 1, Bungy!
