Hanabi Illusion 2022

3:00pm – 12:00am

Japan Airlines is once again hosting Japan’s earliest summer fireworks festival this April, at the annaul Hanabi Illusion in Okinawa.

Held at the gorgeous Ginowan Seaside Park and Tropical Beach, the festival opens at 3pm, with the fireworks set to start at 7pm. The organisers recommend getting there before 5pm to get a good spot to watch the show. It’s an incredible one-hour of pyrotechnics, using both traditional fireworks and state of the art technology.

It will be a night of entertainment, live performances, music, plus loads of food and drink vendors, so you can sit back and enjoy a night under the stars next to the beautiful ocean.

A ticket to enter the festival grounds starts at 2,800 yen for adults, and 1,600 yen for children, if you buy your tickets early. If you prefer to be up close to the fireworks, you can reserve special seating (for an additional cost). Tickets can also be purchased at Family Mart convenience stores, or through Rakuten.

Because of the limited parking available, you can buy a special ticket which includes General Admission and a return trip on the official event shuttle bus. The bus offers pick ups from Omoromachi Station in Naha, or from Chatan.
