Do you want to fly? This show gives you wings! “Japan International Birdman Rally successfully combines elements of documentary and educational programming with competition and pure entertainment.” The object of the rally: to fly as far or as fast as possible in a homemade flying machine. This is something that anyone can relate to, and it is fascinating to see how people step up to the challenge. The Rally has been held every year since 1977. The contest is open to everyone and draws individual eccentrics and enthusiasts, as well as university and corporate teams. The format is flexible enough to accommodate anyone. Everyone launches their craft from the same 10-meter-high pier over Lake Biwa in central Japan to see how far or how fast they can fly.
