Origin of the Peeing Boy at Iyakei Valley, Tokushima

Paragliding experience courses
There are five courses available for paragliding: “① Half day course”, “② Easy course”, “③ 1-day course”, “④ Tandem course” and “⑤ 1-year course”. We recommended ①-④ for tourists. As these are short term courses, they are suitable for those who would like to try but not staying long term in Japan!

The view is exceptional breathtaking from above when you paraglide in the sky. You get to overlook the sand dunes, which usually can be seen just partly, as well as the sea from the sky. Become one with the nature and get your body and mind purified.

It is said that paragliding is the least difficult means of flying in the sky. However, being high above the sky and feet not firmly on the ground, it is instinctively scary. Once you can suppress your fear and “take off” to the sky, perhaps the tension and high pressure of participating in the game will turn into your confidence!
