The Lapu Lapu Paragliding & Hang Gliding School is the best place for paragliding or hang gliding in the Yamaguchi prefecture area. The cost of a tandem flight is 10,000 yen per person, with a max of 9 people per day. There is a minimum weight requirement for kids of 22 kg/44 lbs and a max weight for adults of 105 kg/230 lbs.
They have been in operation for over 30 years now, with Japan Hang Gliding Federation-certified staff in the area.
Gliding begins from 11am and last until 5:30pm during weekdays, or 10am–5:30pm on weekends. There is a safety briefing before the tandem flight. Transportation up the mountain is provided for the paragliding trip. They will explain everything you need to know for a safe tandem flight. Once you are airborne and above the mountain peak, you will be able to feel the updraft and thermals coming off the ground and mountain.
You can also feel the breeze in your face and you glide through the sky like a bird. You can see the coastline, all the rice fields, Oshima island and Iwakuni Castle in the distance and the beautiful green mountain range.
Depending on the weather, after a 15–30 min flight you will start to prepare for landing. The landing area is a very large and give ample room for a safe landing.
The cost is for the transportation to and from the paragliding site. I can pick you from the train station or airport. Just let me know in advance.
I look forward to show you a good time.
My name is Edward, but everyone calls me Edo. I've been living in Japan since 2011. I found a beautiful and peaceful place to call home here in Hiroshima, Japan. I am an easy going person that enjoys good company and meeting new people. You need to come to Yamaguchi or Hiroshima Prefecture and experience the local food, Outdoor recreation, and many other activities in the area. I have been living in Japan for six years now. I mainly guide in the Hiroshima and Yamaguchi prefecture. With the time I have spent living here, I have learned quite a bit about the local area. If you are into outdoor sports, I can set you up with a local paragliding school that offers Tandem flight, Saltwater fishing and Kayaking trips to Miyajima Island. I‘ve been taking clients paragliding for over four years now. It is the perfect way to see the beautiful landscape of the Yamaguchi Prefecture. Just let me know what you are looking for, and I will help you find it. I look forward to sharing my experience with you. Have an awesome day. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
