In order to report a paragliding experience, I visited the Asagiri Kogen Paraglider School where you can fly with a view of Mount Fuji. It is situated in Asagiri Plateau, a 15-minute drive from Fujinomiya. From the Fujinomiya town, take the National route 139 towards Yamanashi prefecture.
Since I have acrophobia, I asked my friend to experience her first flight. In the morning, a panoramic view of Mount Fuji could be seen as weather was absolutely clear. But some clouds started to appear in the afternoon, so we were unsure if she would be able to see beautiful Mount Fuji from the sky.
So it was finally her turn. I was looking up to see her flying like a bird in the sky. She was floating in the air and surprisingly seemed very comfortable. I got very excited and, unexpectedly, thought ‘I want to fly, too!’ …So what was the actual experience like?
