Every year in the beginning of November, Saga Prefecture holds an International Balloon Festival, and hot air balloon pilots come from all over the world to participate. The event draws in hundreds of thousands of guests each year, and is a major source of tourism for Saga Prefecture.
Last year, my friends and I came out, but unfortunately the balloons did not fly due to bad weather. I had almost given up this year, but Tatsu was determined to shoot the festival, and got up every morning at 5am this week. Today, on the final day, I decided to accompany him.
