This is a chance to see hot-air balloons and take a free ride over Yoyogi Park in Tokyo. Opening hours are 7:30am to 7:30pm on August 26 and 7:30am to noon on August 27. The event is organized by four local governments that host hot-air balloon events (Saga, Saku, Suzuka, Motegi). Rides are subject to change depending on the weather.
The rides take place from 7:30am to 10am on both days. The balloons will be tied down, so they will not go far.
We called to find out if you need a reservation, and it seems you do. They now have a waiting list. So, perhaps you can go and have a look this year, and then make a reservation next year. I think it would be nice to see the balloons anyway, especially at night, even if you can't ride in them this time.
The International Women's Network (IWN) is a group of women who enjoy chatting with people from all over the world. We hold a monthly potluck dinner where we exchange information about the local community while eating a variety of foods. No reservation is needed to attend the potluck. Just bring one dish of food and show up at the meeting. Newcomers are always welcome! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy the international city of Tsukuba with us!
