I know not all of us share the same sentiments when it comes to heights. Some find it just straight up dreadful and nauseating when looking down while others enjoy that tingling sensation on their soles. Well as for me, I consider myself the latter.
To prove that, we went sky walking. At least that’s how the name implies in Mishima Skywalk. Stretching as far as 400 meters, this has earned the title of the longest suspension bridge in Japan.
Located in the city of Mishima in Shizuoka Prefecture, this bridge expands from one valley to the other. It will take you approximately 10- 15 minutes to get to the other end. Not to mention a rocky long way down below and the gusting wind that if strong enough can make the bridge sway ( which I also thought to be the most exciting part). Now don’t worry, it is so well constructed that it can safely hold a lot of people all at once.
Oh, try not to miss some Easter eggs along the way!
If high areas are not much your thing, this place also exhibits an indoor Sky Garden. A variety of flowers hanging from the ceiling will sure keep your heads up. It’s also surrounded with souvenir shops and irresistibly unique treats.
Although this place is not as packed with different activities compare to other tourist areas, I guess that’s what the idea is all about and even what some people actually need: a place that offers nothing but a scenic view, a wide open space and a whole lot of fresh air.
