Shimanto River Zipline

Fly over the clearest river in Japan
Cruise over the magnificent Shimanto River on Kochi prefectures first zipline! With luscious green trees as far as the eye can see, pristine water shimmering beneath and the open sky above, you’ll feel like a ninja or a flying squirrel!
The Shimanto River or 四万十川 in Japanese translates to Forty-Thousand and Ten River, which is why it is often referred to as 40010 River. It is the longest river in Shikoku running the length of 196 km and is said to be the last clear river in Japan because no large scale dams have been built on it. Imagine experiencing a 360º view of the this untouched natural landscape while sliding down a zipline!
The zipline is 220 meters across the river and starts at a height of 20 meters. The crusing time is 20-30 seconds of breathtaking excitment.
Access the zipline from the Shimanto Towa Roadside Station in Shimanto Town, Western Kochi.
