Introduction of Mishima Sky Walk

Mishima Skywalk is located in Sasahara-Nitta, Mishima City, Shizuoka Prefecture, and is the longest 400m pedestrian suspension bridge in Japan.
The official name of the suspension bridge is “Western Hakone / Mishima Ohashi Suspension Bridge" and it opened on December 14, 2015 with a total construction cost of about 4 billion yen.
It is a private facility operated by Fujiko, a game business in Mishima City, and its users are said to be 2.2 million in its first two years of operation, so it’s fine.

By the way, before Mishima was built, the longest 390m long " Kuju Yumedai Suspension Bridge " in Kuju , Kyushu .

The 70-meter-high suspension bridge offers a great view.
The elevation is 415m above the bridge girder, so you can see Suruga Bay from Numazu City, Mishima City and Nirayama, and you can also see the magnificent Mt. Fuji below.

As an anti-earthquake measure, it is designed to withstand a strong wind of 65m / s without breaking even at a seismic intensity of 7, but of course it swings a little because it is a suspension bridge.
Suspension bridges are somewhat unsafe if they do not shake.
The width of the walking space is 160cm so that wheelchairs can pass each other.

The floor of the bridge is amiami, so be careful with shoes with walking sticks and heels.
Those with a fear of heights may be a bit tough.
