Blue Impulse is an air squadron belonging to Japan Air-Self Defense Force and one of their missions is to give recognition to why Japan has a Self Defence Force and gain public understanding by showing off their skills and abilities. Without a doubt, Blue Impulse has the highest flying skills for the most beautiful acrobatic displays in Japan.
If you are interested in the Blue Impulse aerobatic display like I was, you can visit air festivals by Japan Air-Self Defense Force in Saitama, Shizuoka, Gifu and other prefectures. This is a great way to roam the air fields and learn the history of the Air-Self Defense Force.
