Parasailing is one of special summer attractions in Namegata City and Lake Kasumigaura.  Through the activity, you can fully experience the area’s greatness!




Parasailing is one of water leisure activities.  First, a boat on the lake moves forward pulling a tied parachute, which makes a gust of wind.  Next, by utilizing the wind you can fly up in the air with the fully ballooned parachute.   You need not change your clothes to swimwear, as your clothes won’t get wet although this activity is called a water leisure.  Casually you can enjoy a trip in the sky.  




 Parasailing is being experienced at a few spots in Japan.  If you look for lakes among them, there are only two available, and one is Lake Hamana and the other is Lake Kasumigaura. 

In addition, the fee for the activity in Kasumigaura is the lowest♪

Please enjoy flying in the blue sky at a height of 70 meters!!
