Afraid of heights? No problem. The Suzuka Balloon Festival will satisfy your curiosity of ballooning, without letting you get carried away.

Suzuka, Mie Prefecture, hosts the festival from Sept. 18-20. The event offers a variety of hot air balloon-related activities (how to build them, touring inside them and lighting them up at night) — but riding in the aircraft is not one of them.
