Sightseeing flights with large balloons are very popular as sightseeing activities all over the world such as Cappadocia in Turkey, Melbourne in Australia, and Safari in Africa. Japan's first large-scale hot-air balloon sightseeing flight approved by the Japan Hot-air Balloon Business Association has begun. As a pioneer, we will start the service at "Watarase Retarding Ground", a wetland registered in Ramsar, Tochigi City, Tochigi Prefecture. You can see Mt. Fuji and the buildings in the city center from the center of the Kanto plain, and the scenic flight while watching the sunrise in the sky is ideal for memories with family and friends. We will also take a commemorative photo in the sky, so please use it as a memory of your family, an unforgettable proposal, or a birthday surprise for your friends. Ride an 8-seater hot-air balloon and fly free for 45 to 60 minutes in the sky at a maximum altitude of about 1000 m. In the daytime, the air warmed by the sun's sunlight rises (updraft), which makes it difficult to maneuver and cannot fly, so we fly in the early morning when the wind is calm. You can board at a wide range of ages, from children to the elderly. Enjoy an elegant flight. * As a measure against infectious diseases, we ask that you wear a mask, measure the temperature, and disinfect your hands. ~ Flow of the day ~ ① Precautions for meeting and boarding 5 minutes ② Move to takeoff place 10 minutes ③ Hot-air balloon preparation 40 minutes ④ Hot-air balloon flight 45 minutes ⑤ Hot-air balloon collection ・ Return to meeting place 70 minutes
