The flight will take place in the Watarase area, where nature remains in its natural state. Isolated from human habitation, the area is home to more than 40 endangered species and a large number of wild birds and small animals! Above the water playground, you can soar to a maximum altitude of 1,000 meters if the conditions are right, and if the weather conditions are right, you can even travel through a sea of clouds to another world above the clouds.

Did you know that balloons were the first human vehicle to fly in the sky? There are many things you probably don’t know about ballooning, such as its history, traditions, wind mechanism, and equipment. The Winning Balloon Club is one of the few places in Japan where you can learn and experience these things in earnest. Please join us for a balloon ride and feel the charm of my favorite ballooning through a “real experience”! However, we consider your safety first and foremost. Therefore, we have strict implementation standards for balloon flight experiences, and unfortunately, we would appreciate your understanding that weather conditions may cause us to cancel the balloon flight experience.
