Japan, also known as “the land of the rising sun”, is an archipelago, a string of islands, on the very eastern edge of Asia. The country is made up of 6852 islands, and there are four main islands; Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu.
Hanazono, located on Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido and part of the Niseko ski resort, is internationally renowned for its incredible powder skiing in winter, and stunning hiking views in summer. And it will soon be known for being the home of Japan’s newest mega zip!
We at Skyline Ziplines are excited to announce that we are entering the Japanese market. We now have a sister company, Skyline Ziplines Japan GK, based out of Tokyo. Our team is currently onsite in Hanazono, where the construction of 3 unique ziplines has begun.
The Skyline Zipline system will take flyers around and above the Nihon Harmony Resort.
Combined these ziplines will have a total horizontal distance of 8,664ft, with one of the lines being the world's longest zipline of its kind!
Japan’s newest mega zip will be a must-try when visiting the resort. And, this zipline project is just the first of many for Skyline Zipline in Japan!
