The Omagari Fireworks Festival is the one of the biggest and most exciting summer events in Japan!
So much more than just a fireworks display, it is a fierce contest of pyrotechnics between over 30 of Japan’s best fireworks manufacturers. In the space of just a few hours over 20,000 incredible fireworks will light up the summer sky in front of crowds of around 760,000 from all over Japan!!
Of course, being a Japanese summer festival, there will be a huge range of delicious street-food and traditional games to be enjoyed at the festival stalls.
Join this tour for a hassle-free experience of the ultimate Japanese summer event. With reserved seating waiting for you there is no rush to fight the crowds, and transport by bus means you can sit back and relax (or sleep on the way home!) while the driver takes care of the traffic!
