A year ago, I posted an article about the Saga Balloon Festival. And since this festival is a yearly event, I decided to write something about it again. As you look at the photos below, you can see a much bigger balloon festival than last year. The Hot Air Balloon World Championship is happening here in Saga city, Japan right now. In fact, I’ve been seeing hundreds of pilots and beautiful balloons flying in the air and competing for each other every day. Here’re some photos I’ve got at the festival.
