Paragliding in the Ina Valley
Fly in the Wind Between the Japanese Alps
The Ina Valley, also known as the ‘Valley of Wind’, lies between Japan’s Central and Southern Alps. This program has been specially designed by Yoshiki Kuremoto, a local man who grew up riding the winds of the Ina Valley. Mr. Kuremoto is an extremely accomplished paraglider who was ranked number one in Asia at paragliding for six straight years.
This special day plan includes a self-maneuvering paragliding experience and a tandem flight. For the tandem flight, the take-off point has incredible views of the Ina Valley and the surrounding alps. From 300m of elevation, you will fly up into the air while enjoying the stunning scenery all around you. There is no better place to try aerial sports than the Valley of Wind so come and enjoy it for yourself.
