P1010970tj

“This festival has one of the largest fireworks shows in Japan. It is held every year on August 13th and has about 20,000 fireworks. This fireworks show features music and lighting performances that are harmonized with fireworks to create high-quality shows. Artistic fireworks called Geijutsu-dama, which are particularly high-quality Japan fireworks, are used and there are also a dynamic performance utilizing the characteristics of the landform, fireworks called Giant Niagara Falls and laser beams. Every year these performances cause great astonishment and surprise among visitors. At the end of the festival, the most popular fireworks, golden fireworks called Nishikikamuro, light up and cover the sky in gold like a golden curtain. It is a very exciting and impressive experience.”
