Hot air balloon experiences are held early in the morning when there are gentle winds. From sunrise for about 1 hour you will be able to see “Matsushima’s Sunshine Avenue,” an orange glowing path created by the sun reflecting off the sea. The sky is fantastic orange color. That color is reflected on the water surface like a mirror. We want everyone to experience this great view. Even a wheelchair can board the door-equipped flight basket. See Matsushima from a new perspective!

The hot air balloon experience held in Matsushima Town is secured with ropes from four directions and rises to a height of about 20 meters, so you can enjoy the superb view of Matsushima.

The view of the islands of Matsushima Bay floating on the water below you is truly spectacular. Enjoy the sunrise in the "Land of the Rising Sun" in Matsushima!

About suspension of the activityThe most important factor in the paragliding experience is the wind. Even if the weather is good, you may not be able to fly depending on the conditions. You can't fly when it's raining. For that purpose, we check the latest weather information to ensure that we can fly. On the day before the experience, please check the conditions and check if the event is held. If it is difficult to determine the forecast at the time, the host company will contact you.
