Is it a bird? Is it a plane?
No, it’s just us having fun on Zip-lines at Biwako Valley.
There you can enjoy zip-lining in summer and snow sports in winter.
Both with unique views of Lake Biwa.
Ariiving at Shiga Station, eager to start our adventure!
Positive signs - Biwako Valley! YAY!
Nice view of Lake Biwa (so I'm told) but I bet it will be better later!
VIPs waiting impatiently for the first cable-car of the day.
Bigger than your average cable-car.
I know you're excited, but get a grip!
Up, up and away!
Snapping a few pictures and enjoying the ride.
Biwako Valley - It's a big place with lots to do.
"Zipline Adventure" - Indeed!
Does this helmet go with my outfit?
"I look like a fireman!" thinks Andrew.
Biwako Adventurers - licenced to thrill.
Almost time for our first read zip-line.
"What do we do here again??" (Actually, we did get a very good safety talk)
We're walking in the air…
"Look mum! No hands!"
Roxy's invisible chair - it was comfy.
"Can I open my eyes yet?!"
Why is our guide twisting the rope…?
… Oh now I get it - spinning!
Let's do the twist!
The high point of the day - 23m! Wow!
No photographers were injured during the taking of this picture.
How not to look cool on a zip-line.
AhhHHHHhhh! (Tarzan Style)
"Someone move that tree!!"
"What does that sign say?! Am I going the right way??"
On our way to the…
… Golden Eagle!
Strike a pose - vogue.
We should come back during winter and try snowboarding!
… 1 to go.
"Face- first? I don't want to go!"
"You pushed me!!"
"Actually, I feel like superman!"
"Ahhh!! Ahhhhhhh!! Oooh - Lake Biwa!"
"I forgot my red cape!"
"I think I just lost a shoe."
The smile says it all!
Why does our guide look sad? Because we're leaving, or because we lived??
"Okay! Who's hungry now?"
A scenic ride on the ski-lift on our way to a picnic spot.
Up in the clouds with a beautiful view across Lake Biwa.
"Can we zip-line back down?"
Enjoying our picnic on top of Mount Horai.
Tune in for more Shiga antics next time.
