Today’s Japan Photo: Hanami from the Skies

For Today’s Japan Photo, we take a look at a special way of enjoying the sakura blossom by flying high up into the skies using a hot air balloon to get a bird’s eye view.

Actually the hot air balloon are ferrying some very special guests – elementary school students from Fukushima Prefecture who were affected by the 11 Mar 2011 Touhoku Earthquake and Tsunami. 200 students were invited for the ride and each time the hot air balloon ferried 5-6 students.
