Also, the design of the signboard of “Balloon Saga Station” will become Nyasu Hot-air Balloon while the convention is held. Nyasu himself will appear at the balloon festival which will be held from the 1st to the 3rd of November.
The first magistrate will become a member of Rocket Dan!? A comment from the boss of Saga “Sagaki.”
Hot-air balloons are the symbol of Saga and is something that Saga is proud of.
I felt strongly that Saga must do something in accordance with this convention where Nyasu Hot-air Balloon which has been delivering excitement to kids in Japan for the past 20 years, will appear. I am the first magistrate of Saga Yoshinori Yamaguchi. Please call me “Sagaki.”
I will become a member of Rocket Dan and try my best to collect members of the group for the boss of our group, Sakaki. Members of the group, let’s unite! We are waiting for your participation in this convention.
Let’s participate in the stamp rally to become a member of Rocket Dan! “Rocket Dan’s Entrance Exam!”
“Rocket Dan’s Entrance Exam” will be held as a member-collecting activity of Rocket Dan.

There are two courses available which are “Shitappa Danin” and “Kanbu Kohosei” so that both children and adults can enjoy the exam.
