Photo Journal: Uplifting experience

A woman enjoys "indoor skydiving" at a recently opened wind tunnel in the Saitama Prefecture city of Koshigaya, in this photo taken on April 23, 2017. The facility, "FlyStation Japan," operated by a business that opened five years ago in St. Petersburg, Russia, is the first large-scale wind tunnel for the general public in Japan. The tunnel is 4.5 meters in diameter and 19.8 meters high and shoots out a blast of wind with a speed averaging 60 meters per second. Beginners can fly with an instructor, and children as young as 4 can use the tunnel. It can be used by groups of four to five people if they are experienced. The courses start at 14,000 yen for two minutes. (Mainichi)
