Japan's longest span footbridge was completed in 2015 and surpassed the previous record holder the Kokonoe "Yume" Otsurihashi Footbridge that opened in 2006 with a span of 390 meters.

Like all succesful tourist footbridges, the Mishima Skywalk has a close proximity to a popular tourist spot. In this case Mount Fuji, the most famous natural landmark in Japan.

Of course the Japanese are no strangers to high and long footbridges. Prior to Ryujin and Kokonoe, one of the country’s longest suspension footbridges was the 1984-built Teruha bridge in Aya with a tower to tower distance of 820 feet (250 mtrs). At the time Aya also held Japan’s bridge height record at 466 feet (142 mtrs). Other high footbridges in Japan include the Ueno Skybridge some 295 feet (90 mtrs) above a forested valley and the Tanise suspension bridge 177 feet (54 mtrs) high with a length of 974 feet (297 mtrs). Constructed in Totsukawa, Nara prefecture in 1954, Tanise is one of Japan’s oldest suspension footbridges and is unusual for having two separate sets of main support cables.
