MSFS Bush Pilots Presents: JAPAN!
We invite all sim pilots to join us for an in-depth multi-leg tour of the islands of Japan. In this series of 24 flights we will take our favorite bush planes and fly low and slow over the mountains, lakes, rivers, cities, farms and highways of this spectacular country. Including over 100 points of interest, we will explore Japanese history and myth, share cultural trivia and travel stories, and just have fun flying. This is the closest you will get to Japan without a passport. Join us for this aerial adventure!
JAPAN! Flight #19: The Ancient City of Gold
As we make our way south toward the capital we will fly along the historic Kitakami River, the site of many famous battles. We will visit the remains of Japan’s resplendent northern capital, Hiraizumi, the chosen home of Japan’s most beloved samurai, Minamoto Yoshitsune. We will fly over Matsushima Bay, one of Japan’s “Three Great Views,” and end at the prefectural capital of Sendai.
