[Hidden Wonders of Japan] Experience Drop from Abeno Harukas, the Tallest Building

For adrenaline junkies it can be a bit stifling at times to live in city like Tokyo — there is no parachuting or mountain gliding in this crammed sprawling metropolis.

Abeno Harukas, the highest building in Japan, puts an end to that misery.

Just a few hours of bullet train ride from Tokyo in the large port city of Osaka, the Kinetsu railway’s 60-floor building is famous for its observatory, which provides a mesmerizing view of the city.

In March the skyscraper complex started a new project called, “Edge the Harukas.” Take advantage of the 300-meter drop and climb up to this corridor, which is 60 centimeters wide and 20 meters long with only a glass barrier separating you from the buildings below.
