Biwako Oudan Netsukikyu Taikai – The hot air balloon race across Lake Biwako

The hot air balloon race across Lake Biwako in Shiga took place at the weekend! It was a little bit of an early start but as we stayed at a ryokan on the beach front of it, it couldn’t have been easier and everyone would agree it was most definitely worth it! In a world where we’ve gotten used to being herded around behind barriers in the name of safety to watch almost anything, it was a refreshing change to have complete freedom to roam, great to get in about the action and atmosphere of the event.
