Yaeyama aims to become paragliders' paradise

Date Posted: 1998-07-10

A year after its completion, Akashi Para-World at Mt. Kuura in Ishigaki City is gaining acceptance as the best paragliding site in the nation. About 50 paragliding enthusiasts from Tokyo and Nagano gathered at the Para-World on July 4th weekend, all of whom praised the facility. "I've heard about this Akashi Para-World quite a lot, but it turns out to be much better. I think this place could easily be called the best paragliding site in Japan," one Tokyo paraglider enthused with others around nodding in agreement.

The busiest season for paragliding will go on through September. Ishigaki tourism officials are confident that paragliding will add yet another dimension for attracting tourists to their already popular island.
