You can reach the take off area easily by mine cart.
After a brave take off, you'll enjoy a beautiful view of the nearby scenery as you soar across the sky.
There is also a paragliding area at the nearby Sky Asagiri (スカイ朝霧).

On top of that, there's a practice area and facilities for children, making it an experience that you can enjoy with the whole family!
Recently an increasing number of people are using the area for paragliding training and to polish their skills.
