Japan did have the ability to send aloft lighter than air craft.
However, there is no basis to assume a Japanese blimp was
responsible for the incident. A blimp quite obviously would not
have lasted very long. No blimps were sighted and the only
mentions of any are sheer speculation. Also, it is not at all
proven there was indeed any object for shells to explode against
and much reason to believe there was not.

However, Japan did use balloon bombs called Fugos. They were
fueled with hydrogen, not helium, and carried antipersonel and
incendiary bombs.
