I was going to write at least one article about flying the Mavic Air in Japan, and I was really looking forward to it too.
Before the trip I looked up the rules, regulations and laws concerning flying RPAS in Japan and it looked like it was going to be very unproblematic. Of course in practice things turned out to be slightly different.
Keeping up with the rule the that there should be no flight within a certain radius of private residences alone ruled out most of the locations I wanted to fly.
The next obstacle were the "no drone" zones. Indicated by signs that left no mistake about them.
And finally the good old weather played havoc on my plan to fly the Mavic Air at three locations, including the location I was most looking forward to: the island of Miyajima.
So unfortunately areal images or videos from our trip to Japan.
