During this event, "bird people" from all over the country come to Hikone to live out their shared dream of flying through the air. Participants apply all their wit to devise their aircraft, and courageously take flight... See the competition in person, and feel the excitement and enthusiasm that just doesn't come across on the TV broadcast.
